I noticed that the Beta 1 for Firefox 3.0 was made available sometime yesterday. I've been curious as to whether the Firefox dev team would do a serious revamp for this release or just concentrate on bug fixes and performance improvements.

It bothers me how there's a growing number of people who believe that early adopters of new technology products or services should not only expect problems, but should also make excuses for the product or service not meeting their needs because it's new. The cry of "it's new technology stupid, you should expect problems" seems to have become the default defense put forward by fanboys and apologists alike. I get this one thrown at me all the time.
