IE5 is nothing to write home about kids. Even the guys in Microsoft know that. The reason Office 2000 hasn't shipped yet is because the whole damn thing is tied to IE and IE is broken, or so say the folks in Microsoft's QA department.

I'm not arguing that Netscape can let the project keep slipping, but they're not going to suddenly lose some huge portion of their market share when IE5 gets officially released.


This is most exciting part of the product from my point of view. DOM/CSS/XML compliance are all evolutionary advances. A cross platform UI built to be completely customizable is revolutionary.

I've got faith.
