That dosn't look like how they are counting it. Notice that they have Mozilla at 1.6% under the "popular browsers" and also 1.6% under the "total global usage". Then they have "Netscape Navigator 4" at 0.6% but in the "total global usage" they have a seperate category for Netscape Navigator (presumably all versions) that is at 2.5%.

It looks like they left off Netscape 6/7 from the "popular browsers", which if the Global totals are correct means Netscape 6/7 should have around 1.9%.

If that is not how they are counting it then they need to clarify.
