    haha. well...i don't think theree are alot of 'known' browsers that are even up to match some of the browsers like opera, ie and netscape (mozilla?). however...you guys do notice the ever increasing number of 'browser tabbed' softwares which make use of IE's engine? lol.

    Ach, teh facts on this are totally off, specifically as it refers to the %'s.

    The market share percentages they initially show are based on a broad survey done of 10K users in which the question was "do you use [x] browser" and many used IE and NS, thus bloating both figures. A better question would have been "what is your primary browser".

    Then, the "improved market share" is based on a correlation between the existing data (above) and how many downloads of ns6 there were which is also false.

    However, good on NS for trying, competition is good as is innovation.

    "Netscape says it has worked with sites such as Adobe.com, MSNBC.com, and Macromedia.com to push for open standards that support the Netscape 6.1 browser."

    Standards that support ns6? That's not a standard.

    "Eric Krock, group product manager for Netscape, told PC World.com late last yearthat he blamed bad HTML coding by the Web site's creators for the problems."

    Ah, it's not our fault WAAAAH!!!

    "Microsoft .Net strategy is going to exacerbate the trend away from Netscape in the workplace"

    This is a load of bs, .net simply allows us to build portable applications independent of environment, for multiple user sets based on a compiled webpage spreader. This has nothing to do with NS, the output will still be standard html/css/js/xml.
