ah I was hoping they were going to add x64 support in this version. They said April but you never know could have been early.

Better than FireFox?

About the same, IMHO. It certainly has some cool features and still has the few things that made me use IE when not using FFox...

But I use Opera 9 cause it has even more.

From what I've heard, this refresh is faster, more stable, fixes some rendering bugs, has links open in a tab right next to the currently active tab, and some other stuff that I don't remember.

It's definitely faster. The build is more stable imo and I am still trying to probe for memory leaks and crap like that.

Overall its a joy. I wish I could make it as minimal as ie 6 was for me but the tabbed browsing just seems more intuitive.

Steps in the right direction here.

So this had been released already... I might take a bit of a look, but before doing so will want to wait for some save points to back up some really massive WUs... These things would be a pain in the arse to lose crunching time on... BTW, look at the 2 CPDN WUs... With only .67% complete after > 14.5 hours of computation time, that's just too much work done and credits to lose...

I'll see how it all goes, after I'm ready to upgrade...
