There are a couple more bugs we'd like to fix for the 0.9 release but want to get as much feedback on the app in general before we go out. Please download this build and test with it and report any show stopping bugs that you find. We are still looking to do a 0.9 final sometime Monday." Builds can be found on the FTP site.
#10 UI design / BUG ...

The UI design has improved a lot since I last looked: preferences are now under edit again, where they belong. And the extion/theme managers are a good idea. However there are still a few UI issues where the UI is much worse than in Seamonkey: the tree views in the preference dialog are just terrible. Save to Desktop as a default is nonsense under Linux (and IMO under Windows too). And why, please, why, is there a close tab button in the right of the tab bar but no new tab button in the left??? Especially the latter annoys me a lot - and I think it is so basic that I should not need an extension for it. BUG: the three icons in the top right of the save as dialog do not show in my Linux XFT build.
