I do not see the need for this release. in the windows world there is ie which is preinstalled, has a lower memory footprint (yes, i know, itīs because it uses the os libs, or vice versa, whatever). Why should one switch to NS6? 80% or more users donīt give a f*ck for standard compliants, they have probably never heard about it. They want to want their favourite websites to works and thats it. On the other side there are the Linux (and probably Mac) users who have no other choice than to wait and hope ( for mozilla, not for NS6, speaking for me). I know there are Konqueror and opera (maybe others, i donīt know) but I donīt really like them (donīt know why, maybe I am waiting and enjoying mozilla for too long ;). The NS6 release is a Bad Thing(TM). I will make people take a look at it and forget about NS forever! Too bad! :( just my 2 cents, Rolf
