I have been working on improvements to the UI of the forums, doing things like making the admin menu in the forum index page change on the fly depending on what your permissions are and what is selected (what rows are selected). Its pretty nice, you can check it out in the test forum at v3.network54.com. This week, I'll have all the admin stuff for the thread menus working the same way, so it knows if a user is a group or not, etc., so you can add them in or remove them without going to an admin page.
It makes things really slick.
And a pain to debug. I highly encourage everyone to update their browsers to the newest one. Please! The experience in IE7 is far better than IE6, and the memory leaks are far smaller. The same with Firefox. FF2 is far, far, far better than FF1.5. Personally, I also find the nightly builds of Webkit better than stock Safari, though they aren't release version like IE and FF.
The moral of the story... please keep up with the browser version recently and in the future. After a long time, they each have major reasons why the new versions are of value. Starting today with FF2 and IE7.
PS: The 800,000,000 post is waiting for an event coming up soon... It will make sense when you read it...
PPS: I'm writing in the v3.network54.com forums again about specific v3 features...
