I'm sorry, I really should let this go, but I can't...

So because you happen to like Netscape 6 and it happens to work for you, you're out of touch with reality? Who's really full of it?

> Wake up and smell the ... coffee... the internet community is so large that your mind cannot possibly comprehend it's magnitude.

That's right, it's a large community (the Internet in general)... do you know what that means? It means that just because Bruce says so doesn't mean it's true!

> The loyal followers/defenders of Mozilla amount to a 1/8th of a needle in a *very large* haystack.

Here we go again with the "you guys are miniscule... but my opionions really matters" stuff. Netscape is a corporation... that in and of itself yeilds a love/hate relationship... there are people that will defend Microsoft to the end and there are those who will slam them no matter what... Netscape is no different.

> Don't get me started on Mozilla either...

So you just wanna bitch and complain, eh? I believe it was you who said that you didn't like the "feel" of it. Well, I'm sorry, but you're going to have to stop upgrading software then. I see a lot of look and feel similarities with Mozilla and all the other new software that's being put out (have you seen/used Win2k? It's interface is a step toward webifing the UI (which is all Mozilla's done). The biggest difference is that Mozilla (and by association, Netscape) jumped right in where MS is trying to ease you into it. And just in case you're a Linux person, I've seen a lot of webifying going on there, too.

> Sorry for sounding so insulting

No you're not... right after you get done saying that, you turn around and issue another insult to anybody who could possibly like Netscape 6.
