Any program in "beta" is more prone to having bugs and glitches as it is still be tested. That said they release it feeling that it is stable enough for the average consumer to use and that if you find a bug they aren't responsible for the damage it causes and that you'll report it so that they can fix it before going "live", or distributing it.

You get to be a guinea pig!

A "beta download" is what many children do with their parents when the pet dies. This is similar to the "goldfish flush".
