Targeted at members of the press and the curious, Google Zeitgeist offers regular statistics on the trends, patterns and surprises found by analysing Google search data. Following on from a discussion in our forums, MozillaZine reader jgraham has been in touch with Google, who say that 'Netscape 5.x' represents "all versions of Netscape 5.0 and newer and anything that uses Gecko."

Update! Zak adds: "'s latest stats (released at beginning of Feb) show that for the first time, Mozilla has a higher share than NS4 (compare with the previous month's stats)."

> IE is slow and has quirks with rendering

Just so we're clear, most of IE/Mac's "quirks with rendering" are actually "correct rendering of CSS, unlike IE/Windows and NS4". It's just that Mozilla's quirks mode is more extensive that IE/Mac's..... (not that this has any bearing on the substance of your post, mind you ;) )
