Maybe I'm ignorant on this issue but would somebody help me out here. Why is this such a big issue?

If you know anything about Mozilla you know that Netscape people are working on the project, and that they are using the code produced through the Mozilla project for Netscape 6.x.

"... which is the code that matches Netscape 6.1." It says right on Mozilla's website. Why would they lie about that and what would it matter if they did. OMG, Netscape 6.1 is based on Mozilla and not 0.9.2 or it came out before 0.9.3 and didn't have a 6.1 PR2. Wooopdeefriggindoo.

Why don't we concentrate on the fact that Mozilla is an awesome browser and I can't wait until the commercial release is out. I use it as my main browser now and it just keeps getting better with every release. I could care less about Netscape's browser because I'm not going to use it, I'm going to use Mozilla.
