Just wondering if anyone else is using it and if they have had any trouble. No issues for me and it handles some sites that the current version stumbles on.

From the ftp site only.
http://ftp.mozilla.org …en-US.win32.installer.exe (external link)

supposedly, a few enhancements to tabbed browsing, better searching through browsing history and RSS integration. At some point integration of Googles anti-phising stuff but not yet in the alpha.

To be honest all I've noticed so far is each tab has its own little X to close it. I'm just suprised it is as stable as it seems for an alpha. No problems at all yet.

I grabbed IE7b as well. Big improvement over the older version. Apparently Beta 2 just came out but I haven't grabbed that yet. Normally I'd just stick with FF but I actually do web design so I kind of collect browsers to see how well things work. :)
