    oh yeah, been waiting for too long, especially they skipped mac support in version 8.

    I'm interested that it now has a Mac version again after version 8 didn't.

    Has a firefox feel to it, pretty quick, imported everything nicely from Safari. Interesting that it is back.

    Like the ability to easily edit the search engines ( i am a dedicated Safari user)

    Not too keen on the green colour system but if it supports Firefox themes then that is all good.

    Needs to move over to OS X widgets (I think that is what is called) see attachment for what I mean, first is Netscape, second is Safari.

    firefox 3.0 will be aqua widgets, i guess at that time, it will be netscape 9.5.

    PS, u can search and download those small apps to change the widgets inside netscape or firefox 1.5/2.0.x

    only differences:

    1. integrated news, and interactive with netscape "digg" like features
    2. able to re-size input field in the webpage
    3. correct typo in URL
    4. LINK pad, temporarily store links u are interested
    5. split a browser window into two
    6. new Book of Mozilla
    PS. Most of these (at least for 1, 5 AFAIK) can be done in firefox if u get some extensions installed.

    What's the main point of this project?
    Am I correct in believing it's based off the Firefox source?

    u are correct, its based on firefox 2.0.0.4
    the main point is to connect browser and web content, and probably get some reward for their contribution to mozilla fundation.
