Netscape isn't GPL - it's a freeware commercial product that uses open-source Mozilla code. Mozilla itself isn't GPL either (but I believe parts of the code are), it's MPL/NPL which the Free Software Foundation doesn't even class as proper open source. I can sort of understand why Netscape 6 could be called adware (it has small ads in Instant Messenger and implicit ads/links to Netscape's site elsewhere), but I agree that it's a bit unfair.
