No, it is true even as far as everyday users are concerned as well. By version 4.x any piece of software should be able execute its primary responsibility - displaying web pages - without crashes. To this day, NS 4.x crashes on regular basis. IE 4.0 crashed a lot less. IE 5.0 hardly ever crashes. That is why NS 4.x was a crappy product. Not too long ago, I've had enough of it and completely switched to IE.
