1.7rc1 was fine but rc2 is clunky for me on linux. When a page is loading I can't do anything except hit the stop button. I can't close the tab. It's like the application 'blocks' when you make a request till it gets a response from the server - or you click stop, or it times out. So I'll move to 1.8a see if that's better, if not it'll be back to 1.7rc1 for me :)
