"Until Mozilla comes out...".

You can go to Mozilla's FTP site, down a zip file, unpack it and run the apprunner. A pretty stable browser now (and the M10 snapshot due shortly will hopefully be even more stable) and actually usable as a day-to-day browser.

Yes, it's an alpha release and isn't shipped with Java or SSL, but you should really have said "until Mozilla beta comes out and is packaged with a no-brainer installer" (are there plans for one of those with the December beta release ?).

Also, will Mozilla be available for <ftp://ftp.netscape.com> and/or publicised from Netscape's site ? Since we know that Netscape 5.0 beta won't be out until next year now, the Netscape site really should player up the December Mozilla beta release to push people towards it. If they don't, very few Netscape users (Joe Public Windows users, not your Linux technies) will "stumble" across www/<ftp://ftp.mozilla.org> !

I'm sure about 95% of Netscape users don't even know that Mozilla exists.
