There's probably nothing wrong with trying M3 (M4 when it becomes available). However, it's not fully functional -- for instance, you can't add to your bookmarks. If you do decide to give it a try, DO *NOT* USE IT TO REPLACE YOUR CURRENT VERSION OF NAVIGATOR/COMMUNICATOR -- and you should not attempt to depend upon it for mission-critical situations. Also bear in mind that no technical support is available for the developer previews or the nightly builds. I'd stay away from the nightly builds unless you're a programmer or Web developer or you're at least VERY comfortable with running test versions of software. You may also find it interferes with other apps -- for instance, on Windows, it's not a good idea to run ICQ and current versions of Mozilla at the same time. That being said, if you really want to download it just to take a look at the latest "Milestone" developer preview, it *probably* won't do your system any lasting harm, although you may find yourself rebooting from time to time if you make much use of it.
