As far as I'm concerned, Netscape can spew out all of the charts it wants comparing this, that, or the other. Same way that M$ or any other company can do the the same. In the end the consumer will decide for themselves by using the product.

The fact is that Netscape 6 is a *huge* disappointment and poses a threat to IE's market share about as much as WinZip. Charts in this case are about as meaningful as the calorie count of a Snickers bar that a little kid is about to consume.

NS 6's poor quality isn't a surprise, really... at least not to me. However, the *magnitude* of it is. I never thought the final release would be *this bad*. No shit.
