I have switched to TB since 0.2. Considering the excellent stability and good performance (on a P4/2400, Win2K), I was always wondering why it's named 0.3 while it deserves 0.9 at least. The backend is taken from the stable Mozilla 1.5 and the front end has only minor glitches. Congratulations to Scott for all of his efforts.
