You missed a memo, Moby!

It's interesting, but I find it far too cluttered and still quite slow. And it's pretty ugly!

I liked the security zone setting thing on each tab. But the ui was just so ugly I had to stop using it. I don't know what they were thinking...

It is now out of beta and is at version 8.0.1.

One of the notable improvements of the RTP version is that it can use standard Windows Skins.

But there is no way to open a new tab from the address bar.

AND http://www.windowsupdate.com automatically changes the browsing engine from Firefox to Internet Explorer!!! This is a very bad thing if a kinda trusted page can force Netscape Browser to turn to the more insecure web engine, so can a page with malicious intent.

I wouldn't doubt it if it is (wow, four two letter words in a row) hard coded/an option in the program because WindowsUpdate won't run on any other rendering engine except IE's.
