I when to the CNET review, and was planning to write to the editor on how he was heavily pro-MSFT in his review. When I read the review, though, I thought it was pretty fair.

For those that didn't read it, here is the last line (Copied without permission):

Too little too late? While we're impressed by Netscape 6.1's performance improvements, Netscape 6 should have run this well nine months ago. In the interim, Internet Explorer has only increased its share of the Internet surfing populace--according to BrowserWatch , more than 87 percent. If you're completely satisfied with IE, we see no compelling reason for you to switch browsers, but if you're even a little curious about finding a full-featured alternative to IE, Netscape 6.1 is finally worth a try.
