Mozilla and Netscape 6.x are not competitive applications. NS 6 is based on Mozilla code (added some proprietary extensions, plugins and ui fixes). What you see on a new "release" of Mozilla is at least two months ahead of the latest NS6.x release.
Mozilla binaries are released mainly for testing purposes. From time to time (when trunk stabilizes, especially but not only on milestone releases) it is quite usable for simple users. Although the lack of plugins, separate icons, spellchecker etc might repulse the average user from using it. Personally I prefer it over NS6, both at work and home.
