    I don't know why they changed names. New name is kinda gay. Hopefully they worked out some of the more annoying page rendering issues. (Mozilla's only real problem)

    It looks identical to 0.7. I haven't gotten deep enough to see if they fixed the bug where you had to refresh a thread to see images wider than your current resolution. The image rendering looks a little sharper, but that may be pyschological.

    Switching between tabs is a little faster.

    Why does it render the color for the quick reply area different than IE? :confused:

    I seem to remember looking at the CSS code for a normal OT thread page, and it's a specified color... seems like it should render it the same :dunno:

    No thanks.

    I remember using Mozilla.

    I loved how I couldn't scroll when there was a big image. It's slower than IE on my computer too.

    Problem with images was fixed.

    The only reason IE is faster is because it isn't filled with security holes and it doesn't have a nut hold on your operating system.
