Jesus, you'd think half the people who have posted in response to this article were slashdot trolls who can't even use their own computer.
The latest Mozilla (0.9.1 or the nightlies) are extremely stable, much more stable than any version of IE, Opera, or Nutscrape I've ever used. I haven't had it crash once yet. I'm sure there are a few showstoppers here and there, but that would not be unique to Mozilla. If you would take the time and get your machine working properly you should have a similar experience.
Please note, this is on 2 differnet machines with different versions of libc, and most of the other system libraries.
As for Opera and IE, they're really good, in fact great. IE seems less stable to me, and Opera's interface leaves much to be desired(IMO, but that's all it is). Remember, those aren't free, and they have had years to mature. Mozilla is a completely new code base built completely from the ground up 2 years ago. In that two years they have built a browser as advanced as anyone else ever has in 5 years. The rendering engine is incredible, especially considering that it's so new.
Personally, I think the Mozilla team should have built just a nice simple fast browser first, then added all the other components later, but that was their decision, after all it is their project.
If you are going to criticize, please, get a fucking clue first. Until you have a fucking clue, please practice STFU, it's very helpful when you don't know what you are talking about.
Also, please try changing to the modern theme before you say that the interface looks the same as 4.x, geez...
If you still don't like the interface, you might like to try galeon, or kmeleon(sp?) in windows. I really like galeon, it's a nice simple gtk interface, it's extremely fast and has some nice features such as tabs for different windows. It's status is still listed as being alpha, but it's fairly stable, but there are some annoying glitches here and there. Should be excellent when it's done.
