#28 From an end user's point of view...

Mozilla 14 doesn't seem to do very much very well.

I'm still trying to understand the excitement and hoopla over Mozilla. I appreciate why developers like it, because similar code will run on a number of platforms. I understand why content pushers will like it, because it apparently will make it easy for them to clutter up your browser with all sorts of commercialism.

But I've been playing with Mozilla and now Netscape 6 for weeks and weeks, and, from an end user's point of view, I just don't see anything of great value, other, perhaps, than the ability to access multiple mail servers without having to reload another profile from outside of the program.

What are all the benefits from the user's point of view supposed to be? Not the B.S. benefits, the real ones?

If they aren't there, users simply will not use it. There have to be *real* benefits...and so far, they seem more like vaporware.
