Mozilla 0.9.2 Released
Friday June 29th, 2001
mozilla.org released milestone 0.9.2 today, which many at mozillaZine believe to be the best candidate for a 1.0 release yet, from an end user point of view. New items since 0.9.1 include 25 more top crash bugs fixed (as measured by Talkback) along with a new context sensitive help system, a new view source window, and a new preloader for windows called 'Turbo'.
Following 0.9.2 are two releases, 0.9.2.1, which will be taken from Netscape's branch after they complete their release from it, and 0.9.3 which will be taken from a branch off the trunk, and will not be under the same drivers checkin control, as previously reported.

I think you are still missing the point.
No that long ago, a very large, heavy industry parts manufacturer here in my region began an aggressive television advertising campaign that ran during one and only one particular show. It was one of those ads that left you scratching your head and asking 'who on earth would be interesting in this stuff.' Well, it was later reported to be a concerted effort to reach a single (repeat: a single) decision-maker who, this company knew, was a fan of the show.
Likewise, the company for which I work has many individual clients that represent more revenue than the cost of maintaining a cross-browser e-commerce site. If any one of them called to say their choice of browser did not work with our site, the current team of programmers would be executed and a new team of programmers would be hammering out a solution before the client could hang up the phone!
Just because 99% is happy does not mean you can ignore the 1%. As I said before, 1% can represent $(m/b)illions!!! When dealing with large enities or billions of smaller ones, 1% represent a healthy sized market from which many wealthy people/companies have made their riches!
