"Browser vendors such as AOL and Neoplanet committing to building their products on the Mozilla codebase."

When did AOL commit to using Mozilla? Surely you're not referring simply to the awful Netscape 6.x releases. AOL has been distinctly mum on the question of Mozilla adoption for the AOL browser.

"the word is slowly spreading amongst web developers as well."

I am a web developer and I deal with many web developers. Yes, the word is spreading. that word is: Mozilla is buggy and slow, and nowhere near ready for prime time.

It's really looking like it never will be, with the ever-increading defect curve, and AOL's likely unwillingness to continue to sink hundreds of millions of dollars per year into a product which can't make it any money. (In case you hadn't heard, AOL is now in a drastic cost-cutting regime.)
