#18 on Netscape's UI Decisions...

Now that was a GOOD article! It addresses all the exact reasons why Netscape seems not to be going anywhere.

The stuff on the user interface is a first I've seen. Personally, the interface for Netscape for Windows looks like a rejection from Microsoft's UI Department (and Opera... haha that UI looks like a reject from NS). Netscape for Linux is a different case... MSIE's interface is extremely snazzy, but is attached to IE, which I extremely dislike. Somehow... Netscape's UI uses less memory, looks more complicated, and looks MUCH worse. And onto my rants on Netcenter... The thing, functionally, is the best thing since Yahoo. But, gees, the graphics, and organization.. IT'S HORRIBLE! Nested tables (ew), more annoying blue-gray graphics, it's sickening.

So.. my most fave thing that I'd want in NS5 for Windows next to better stability, is some type of version of Chrome, customizable interface. Paradise!
