Beta basically means its not quite done yet, so you can play it and if you see anything that doesn't seem to work quite right, or look quite right etc. you can post about it and let the guys know that before it is a "finished" product you would like to see this or that fixed, or changed etc.

Its kind of in test mode ..............

She answered your question and did a fine job =o), but i found this extra bit interesting...

I guess it was called beta because the words relationship to the greek alphabet. Alpha being the 1st & Beta being 2nd letter in the alphabet. (alpha the 1st test by those who created it, beta being the test by a select group etc..)

beta

Historical note: More formally, to beta-test is to test a
pre-release (potentially unreliable) version of a piece of software
by making it available to selected (or self-selected) customers and
users. This term derives from early 1960s terminology for product
cycle checkpoints, first used at IBM but later standard throughout
the industry. `Alpha Test' was the unit, module, or component test
phase; `Beta Test' was initial system test. These themselves came
from earlier A- and B-tests for hardware. The A-test was a
feasibility and manufacturability evaluation done before any
commitment to design and development. The B-test was a
demonstration that the engineering model functioned as specified.
The C-test (corresponding to today's beta) was the B-test performed
on early samples of the production design, and the D test was the C
test repeated after the model had been in production a while.

Thanks to both of you for the answers! I was wondering if it was 'second' testing as in second letter of the alphabet so that part was really what I was looking for. I think I got lost somewhere around "the B test is the C test and the C test is the D test" but ultimately, I got my answer! lol
