Has anyone tried it yet? I am wondering about it's speed, mozilla 0.6 for linux is still a bit slow. I tried a previous beta and it caused a couple of problems with Xwindows so I have cold feet.

Just tried it now...

Might just be my system, but it didn't show scrollbars when the page was too wide, nor re-render the content to fit.

Result: had to resize the window to see whole content.

Tried it on numerous sites - all the same.

If anyone's got it working properly then please shout as it looks quite nice other than that...

Beta 8 was released last week and is much, much better imho. I've crashed twice.

I just wish plugins would work. I guess the mech is all wired up, but not "plugged in" just yet. Suppose to just use Netscape plugins off the shelf.

There are a couple of things about the linux port that are better than the windows port. Like the personal toolbar, and display of browser id...etc

I tried it a few weeks ago and it seemed fine, but having said that I didnt try it for long.
Also tried konqueror the other day and its much better than Netscape 4.7 - again I didnt play with it much as I didnt configure it to access the internet so it was only a couple of sites on my lan I could look at.
