I echo, what krissilver said this is a Great release.

There is some very good new features. Things look simpler, having close button on the tabs, and having the go button attached to the url bar is a good move, though it annoys me. There are easy ways to fix it. One thing that dose annoy me a lot though and I think was a bad idea was have a minimum with to on the tabs. lucky that can be fixed too.

It is still only a beta, there are supposed to be bugs at thing stage. But is is a move in the right direction.

Oh, a hate the new theme. Hopefully some one will recreate a default theme the looks like the 1.5 version. <http://forums.mozillazine…rg/viewtopic.php?t=452014>
