    Netscape?

    How important is it to support Netscape?

    In my statistics only 5% use Netscape.

    Is it worth the time to support netscape?

    Stats for Netscape vary between 5-15% depending on your user-base. I think it is still valuable to code for Netscape. It forces you to write cleaner and more compliant code as well as making you think more about nesting and loading issues. Plus, if it wasn't for Netscape, lots os users would have crappy code.

    I will continue to support Netscape since Yahoo require it for a listing.

    I agree about the coding creole. Whe i develop a site I start to develope it for IE. *When I test it on netscape it never works perfect until I have cleaned up the code.

    For the most part if you keep to standards it tends to work "quite" well in Netcape!

    Yup...I very rarely have problems with Netscape's compatibility with my code. Once you have been doing it a while, you automatically add in the necesary tweaks that Netscape demands.
