I'll sum it up for uou in a nutshell...

A native UI is *fast* and responsive. A mozilla UI is sluggish at best.

Even NS 4.X sported a native UI... nothing like we have seen in either NS6 or the Mozilla builds.

Sure... there are those that say 'I can't tell a difference'... but I have maintained, and still do, that a few cans of a six pack are missing here.

My wish from years ago that was the 'New Netscape' would break serious ground and make an almighty comeback from IE.

That's not the case anymore... NS6/Moz is destined for a very small population (read me niche).

You can disagree and argue with me until you are blue in the face... but facts are facts. Sadly but true.

I'm not a flamer... nor a spammer... I'm just a dude that was way too late in having a word in edge wise as to the direction and strategy that the the new Netscape/Moz should take.

That's about the sum of it.
