The menu in the browser confuses me. To create a new window I select
Window but to close the window there is no Window->Close window. I have to use
Close->Window instead. IMHO this item should be moved and Close->Close all
windows should become "Quit". It is weird to have these two window-related menu
items in two entirely different places.

same web browser on another platform. We've shipped:
 Opera 8 (IT OS 2005)
 Opera 8.5 (IT OS 2006)
 Gecko 1.9 alpha (MicroB releases)
Which means you can grab Opera 8 for your favorite desktop platform, or Opera
9, or Firefox 3 nightlies (they're called Minefield, which yes, means they
might blow up).
