While that's just slightly true (I got 2 crashes out of 120+ runs so far), it's almost a thing of the past. I don't have the platform preview 6 but the beta installed (and currently posting from it) and I have to say I'm very very very impressed, so impressed I have been a mozilla preacher all this years and I'm changing my views very fast on this one...

At least for this version (you, unfortunately, never know with Microsoft...) they're kind-of making amend for all the things they have been missing and they're even showing us they can really be on top if they really want.

Their anti-popup is slightly better than the one in Firefox, now it has a download manager, hardware accelerated assets... Ok, I'll stop before I look like a Microsoft representative hahaha but anyway... in MY opinion... it's going to take the crown Firefox had for quite a long time and... against WebKit-powered software (ala Safari, Chrome, Midori, Epiphany, etc...)? Hmmm not sure in that sense, I think that will be IE9's real competitor.
