I think people are abusing and over analysing the words "alpha" and "beta" lately. As far as I am concerned, mozilla has been in alpha ever since the code was available to the public. I consider alpha to be any release between when the last closing brace in the main function is typed until there is a feature set/api freeze. After that, any bugfix releases before it reaches a stage where the devolpers are confident enough to say "its done" is beta.

Just my $.02 -kevin
