nik gare: I'm sure O3 will be significantly better than O2. But if your original point was to do with ongoing development once released, I also look for an improvement over the situation with O2, where 18 months passed without /any/ changes or improvements whatsoever. While I accept what Peter N says about the difficulty of browser development (he should know), there is a difference between saying to the market: 'Here it is; take it or leave it, warts and all' and 'Here it is, and we will be supporting and improving it on an ongoing basis'. I can think of a number of RO developers who fall into the latter category -not all commercial ones, either- Oregano unfortunately falls into the former category, but this was not made clear at the time of the original release of either version (both of which I bought, and use). I hope when O3 is released it will be made clear whether we can expect a continuing process of improvement, bug fixing etc 'free of charge' or whether it will be a question of waiting (and paying good money) for O4.
