Time Magazine Article on Mozilla

I guess so called 'geek features' like tabbed browsing and pop-up blocking aren't so geeky afterall. Check out a scan of the print version and read the article over on Time.com."

The author also fails to mention that:

- Lots of Netscape engineers, on Netscape/AOL payroll, contribute on a daily basis to the Mozilla project. - That the mozilla / "Gecko" rendering engine has been used not only by the Mozilla/Netscape6 browser but also stand-alone in the Gateway internet appliance with "Instant AOL" (aol ported to linux), and that the same Mozilla/Netscape engine is now part of the CS2000 7.0 (r2) software, replacing the IE engine, and that AOL 8.0 will use Gecko too. - That the Netscape 6.x series that he says "crashes when you look at it funny" is simply the same Mozilla source code frozen at regular points with the addition of extra features for the end-user convenience, like the Flash plug-in, Real Player, Sun's Java2 runtime. - That Netscape is going to release another 6.x (6.5 or 7.0?) release after Mozilla hits v1.0, which will be exactly as nice, if not better, than the regular mozilla builds.
