A number of people have submitted this article, and while it's not really news, it's just another example of how Mozilla is starting to win people over. This is also beneficial to the evangelism efforts going on.

"That's not to say that we stop making it better but it is to say that your top 10 list doesn't really matter that much since it doesn't affect this distribution issue."

Absolutely it will. The better the product gets the more likely manufacturers and ISPs will be to distribute it. No manufacturer is going to distribute a buggy, unusable product. They don't want to piss off their customers, nor do they want to deal with support questions for said product. You are putting the cart before the horse.

As mozilla/Netscape 6 improves, it seems to be gaining traction. I was *shocked* (pleased, but shocked) to see Netscape 6.x (1 or 2) on the desktop of a friends new Compaq system.

If mozilla becomes 2x as good as IE, no manufacturer or ISP will dare *not* distribute a mozilla-based browser. (Assuming they are "allowed" to by MS.)
