I'd like to know if any web-developer features are planned for the browser, e.g. ability to constrain the browser window and also viewable page area to standard screen sizes like 640x480, 800x600 etc.

Perhaps emulation of various colour depths too??? IE5 provides an IE4 compatibility mode, what about Nav5->4?

Also, is holding back Nav 5 for CSS2 compliance an option, since it is recognised that constant upgrades aren't actually in anyone's interest since standards-ompliance becomes a serious issue.
