Java browser

NetBeans 6.8 M1 was released a few days ago. And it came with its own embedded browser! The browser looks good. Really good. Of cause there are some problems: crashes, hangs, no flash support. I also did not managed to login to my gmail account with it :) But hey, it's just the initial release, so we can't be very demanding.
It's worth notion that the browser is based on Mozilla XULRunner. Which means that it is not related with mysterious JWebPane (based on WebKit). So, it looks like Sun is forging two java browsers. Wow!
