Netscape seems to have made a very pre-mature and surpising "push-out-of-the-door" to counter the start of IE 6.0 beta testing.

Netscape 6.0 is definitely an unfinished product and therefore will create a lot of unhappy faces. It still goes in the right direction though.

Seeing it in a more positive light - that takes away the tremendous pressure from the Mozilla community to kill showstopper bugs in the least time, what is not always the most effective method; instead it is now possible to concentrate a little bit on doing the job right (100% standards compliance -- and looking at the memory footprint at the same time).

At the end, nobody is forced to use Netscape, as long as we can use the nightlies and Netscape has the opportunity to catch up with 6.1 :-))
