This is an alpha for Gecko 1.9. the rendering engine, not for Firefox per se (thus the "no significant user interface changes"). Given the nature of the changes that will be in Gecko for 1.9, getting early testing to help find bugs and regressions is imperative.

BTW, author of the article: It's Mac OS X; Mac is short for "Macintosh", not an abbreviation for Media Access Control, and there's a space between the abbreviation for "operating system" and the Roman numeral 10 ;)
