    Does anyone know what the current percentage of browser use on the Internet is with Netscape?

    Last time I checked it was under 10%, but that number is probably decreasing as more and more realize that IE is a much better browser

    It may be low, but in that 10% there could be a crucial client so I would not disregard Netscape users.

    I always design my sites to accomadate all users; I was just curious. Personally, I maintain a church Web site that averages about 60% AOL

    This leads me to a follow-up question: what would you say the advantages are, from a developer's perspective, of MS Internet Explorer? (I am not knocking NN or trying to start a debate.)
    • Support for CSS, especially positioning and the 'Link Psuedo Class Selectors'
    • VBScript and Windows Scripting Host
    • ActiveX support

    MSIE handles sloppy code better than Netscape. It also supports a few tags that NN doesn't.

    Netscape is closer to the standard compared to IE. If the standard had great support for DHTML, Jscript, CSS, XML, etc then I am sure Netscape would enforce it.

    CSS and XML (XHTML 1.0) are the standards and have been for some time. Netscape like Microsoft has tried to introduce their own standards, except that the W3C rejected most of the Netscape suggestions.
