From my perspective as a Web Developer, the single biggest lacking of NS4.x is it's difficulty (compared to IE4) to rerender the page after the document loading.

For this reason alone, for dHTML IE4 is a more atractive development prospect. And as somebody who develops largely for large intranets, where migration to IE4 is often viable... so NS4.x just gets dropped.

What NS needs to do is make hacking up a document after it's loaded in NS4.x as easy as in IE4.
