Well, that's what I mean.. Nokia, Intel, IBM.. But where are the products? IBM's OS/2 browser is for a completely marginal operating system that hasn't been updated in years and years and that hardly anyone uses anymore. Nokia's and Intel's web appliances (which are actually very similar in many ways) are both experimental products that you won't see on shelves in stores for years - if even then.

If you check web server logs for a *major* site that represent a good average of all web users, you'll find that Mozilla and Netscape 6 users - together - are completely marginal right now (less than Netscape 3 and IE 6 beta!). Given the reactions Netscape 6 (and 6.01) is receiving in major web sites and magazines, that percentage isn't going to rise anytime soon unless the browser gets it's shit together. In light of that, "go away" and "shut up" isn't the right response to critical opinions.
