Biases are showing through in this review. Netscape 6.1 is clearly a step forward and getting close to IE, and yet they've obviously overlooked many of the features (form manager is better, pw manager better, cookie manager better, theming, INSTANT MESSAGING!!). They can't even say "Kudos for getting it fixed/right!" While it may be true a lot of people won't switch without a gentle push, there was nothing in here showing the true positives of Netscape thus far. CNET/ZDNET has shown their allegiances to Microsoft long before, now they are confirming it further.
