Thanks for that, I will install and take for a spin to see what's what.

Can't see it wrestling chrome from my hd but we'll see.

Wait, so this isn't the actual beta, but what the beta could be? Like an RC?

No, it's like a beta-test, or pre-beta. Not quite the real Beta, which would be right before an official Beta 1.

Things are actually looking very positive at the minute and this has the real potential to be very very fast. I'm quite surprised right now!

Will test some more and reserve judgement until v1.

Does anyone find that this release causes the taskbar to not pop up when you hover the mouse over it?

EDIT: Actually it seems to always be on top. Anyone know a way of preventing this?

EDIT 2: Ok, i feel stupid. I can see how to turn this off. Just ignore me.

I think I will wait till beta 2. I don't feel like screwing with it.

wow, thats not good. Glad this isnt the final release.

I've given up on it. As i posted above it seems to want to always be on top. I tried turning the Tabs on top off but it still wants to be on top, although its random.
