    Not true. If you look at the graphics on the site you see that first the alpha's came, now the beta and after that RC1 and 2 will arrive before the final product will be available.

    Good.
    I always have fun when I compare the version number of Firefox with MSIE.
    Version 1.5 vs. version 7.0 and Firefox is still better than MSIE. :D
