#13 I agree, somewhat

I started to get angry when I first read the part that said to install everything except Mail and News. But then I realized that the article is for people who only want to replace their browser.

Mozilla is my mail client, and I like it a lot. I've been using the Netscape/Mozilla mail client for over 5 years, and I have over 50,000 messages stored, and lots of filters set up. I can see why some people would not want to replace whatever mail client they are using, and it is good to have a guide that tells how to set up the Mozilla browser only.

I do wish the article at least included a line like "These instructions are for people who do not want to replace their current mail/news client."

Feel free to put that line in the article.
