I've been using Mozilla for the last year now, initially as only a curiousity, but increasingly as my main browser. When I upgraded to Windows ME (from Win98) in October, I did not even bother installing Netscape ... I have used Mozilla solely as my internet browser. I have only lost all my email once (and that was kind of my fault). A few regressions have been bad, but other than that, this product surpassed IE and NS 4 a long time ago. Why are there still people out there that seem determined to spread negative vibes about this exciting open source experiment. Don't they have better things to do with their time?

Its like people want us to fail. The article about disabling java, javascript and flash was just astounding: This isn't 1995.

Did the Mozilla people do something to upset the rest of the 'community'? For that is the only reason that I can see as to why fools keep trotting out the same old furphies.

I had a point to writing this post, but it got lost somewhere.
