If you look at "my netscape" with 6.1 you will notice that drag n drop for the content boxes works fine. That is actually how "my AOL" has been with IE for a long time. Actually it looks like they are slowly migrating netscape.com to AOL.com's technology and partially to its content. As you might remember from a recent article, AOL was targetting corporate users with netscape.So basically Netscape 6 on netscape.com is a test bed for AOL before they move their ISP client to Mozilla. Once Netscape.com and AOL.com gets more and more closer in the underlying technology and html code (probably not in content), it will be safe for them to replace IE. AOL also made it obvious that they target more platforms than windows. They want AOL to run on your toaster. They eventually have to migrate to netscape browser to achieve that goal.
