Kindle Touch Browser - is it still experimental?

I was wondering if there were any significant improvements with web browsing on the Kindle Touch, as I noted that it was not under the experimental section of the specs on Amazon.com which would suggest that it has been improved.

[edit] Amazon have now moved it back into the experimental section, must have been a mistake Sad

It would be nice if they have somehow fixed the 'link in new window' issue and hopefully improved the performance as well as complex pages are just horrendous.

Also, it would be nice if these updates could make it to the Kindle Keyboard (ugh I hate that) although the browser does seem to be classed as experimental on the new vanilla Kindle.

I think that's the most annoying thing on the experimental brower. You can't do anything that needs to open a new window.
