But you forget, Chris, that even though building a more solid browser matters a great deal, they do not generate revenues from Navigator or Communicator anymore. Instead, Netscape has been forced to branch out into other areas such as the portal service, for instance, in order to generate money. The last I heard, about 1/4 of their revenues came from the advertisements on the portal.

Nonetheless, I applaud the decision to implement the NGLayout engine in the next generation browser.
