Netscape Not Doomed

Thursday November 19th, 1998

Joel Caris writes in with this great news: "It would appear someone in the media figured out Netscape isn't doomed. An article at ZDNet suggests that Netscape isn't spiraling down into oblivion and has actually held its own against the Win98/IE integration."

In reading some of the talkback, I found someone that said that IE4 is faster than netscape and IE5 blows away communicator 4.5

Being a linux user, I use netscape and always will. I have communicator installed on my win98 partition. I am awaiting the moment when I can test out the new nglayout (spidermonkey?) viewer. I want to see exactly how fast it is. Unfortunately, seeing screenshots of how it works ok for now isn't good enough. Let's get some builds posted for linux, windows, solaris and all other systems as soon as it is bearable to look at. Mozilla needs to show that it is stride for stride with IE5 and may even outperform it and be better at standard compliance. In short, let me have a build that I can take a look at!
