True, but "We make no guarantees of it's performance or stability" is very different than saying "I definitely do not recommend using Firebird for any actual work, since it's still in pre-release, and stability is obviously not guaranteed. " Note the "Definitely do not recommend", who here can "recommend IE" for a work environment? Who can "Recommend IE" to me for dealing with my bank accounts?

Heck, I could ask this over at slashdot and be pretty much sure of an atleast 80% agreement that IE is definitally not the safer nor "more stable" browser. Even my girlfriend is amazed that FB has not yet once crashed on her. (disclaimer: I'm sure there are some very easy ways to crash FB/Moz, but so are there with IE)

I do agree FB is not "Consumer ready" and is definitally not at 1.0 release yet. But It just amazes me that one would consider IE more "stable" and "safe" than the mozilla counterparts.

just my 2cents
