IE/Netscape Stats from Zvon
Thursday October 7th, 1999
Miloslav Nic writes, "I have an anecdotal evidence about the ratio of Netscape and IE advanced users. If you look at the October statistics of the Zvon tutorials : XSL, XML, CSS, Perl it gives the ratio Netscape 58 : IE 42. These tutorials are used by people who are interested in the newest web developments and who are therefore more picky about the browser they use than an average user. So even today's Netscape 4 is preferred by many power users to IE5. And NC4 is definitively not a software pearl. If Mozilla 5 is out with full CSS, HTML 4, XML, DOM and XSLT compatibility and with reasonable size then IE is in a big trouble."
If you think that's a good percentage, you should see the stats from MozillaZine! :-)

I have to say I agree with you. When ever I use N4 I find it one of the most buggy browsers I have ever had to use not to mention the most unusable.
However, Mozilla is a different animal. If only for the reason that it is open source... if it sucks then we've only got ourselves to blame!
