Google Zeitgeist Browser Stats Now Recognise 'Netscape 5.x'

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)."

I have to completely disagree that Gecko has to reach 20% to be positive. Even if Gecko had only 10% of the market, how many web designers would make a page that doesn't render properly with Gecko-based browsers? Probably much fewer than today. Isn't that positive?
