I was a Netscape user until IE5.0 came out with support for Bidi Arabic. I wish I could still use Netscape, but access to Arabic sites is just too important for me. There was an Arabic Netscape add-on from sakhr.com, but it crashed all the time.

I'm happy that Mozilla is finally getting Bidi support. This should be a given for a world-class browser.
