John, Firefox 3 will hopefully be no later than a year from now. But the more important point is that work on Gecko 1.9 has been happening since August 2005. That's a years' worth of major changes that really need to be tested. We're hoping to finish landing the remaining big changes in the next month or two, and there will probably be another alpha release at that point, then betas.

In the meantime, we desperately need testing, especially of website compat, with these builds.
