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.

According to the roadmap, version 1.0 isn't far away. As it is, we're all aware that many websites and magazines have been promoting Firefox as a browser of choice, even in its pre-release state. It's become very popular, and knowing this but arguing to screw up the UI due to it being a pre-release is an example of developers being pricks and hair-splitting by people disconnected from reality or wanting to be part of some irrelevant clique. Screwing up the UI will destroy a lot of momentum and goodwill that we have going forward as well as alienate users from the project.
