Firstly, I kinda agree. Netscape 6 is useable, but compared to Internet Explorer 5 and Netscape 4 its clunky and unresponsive. The UI is simply not slick enough to make it feel like a good product, no matter how good the rendering engine is. Also, some of the obvious bugs from NS6PR3 are still present. Try opening a link in a new window with the main window maximised under Windows to see what I mean ('default status text' anyone?). As for secret APIs, Windows NT does have a secret native API, which is well known (although not well documented). See the excellent book 'Undocumented Windows NT' for more information. I doubt that sny of it is used in internet explorer, though.
