I just checked my view of the three points made there, and this is how that went out:

QUALITY:

An MTBF of at least 1 hour seems okay. When M11's MTBF is already over that - and for me it seems more stable than Communicator 4.7 - then M12 could be even better!

ARCHITECTURE: I'm no real programmer, so Ican't really tell but everything mentioned there seems quite good for a half-knowing guy like me.

ACCEPTANCE: That point's interesting. I think I'm now using Nav4.7 for about 60% of my browsing time, MSIE gets less than 1%, Mozilla M11 gets about 40%. And I'm using Mozilla more and more because of Nav4.7 being that unstable and I simply don't want to switch to MSIE. For me it's interesting that this is in Alpha Creteria but I like it - and I hope other will more and more do like me.

Mozilla as my primery browser - sounds good - but Java applets should work, that's often a reason for me to turn back to Nav4.7 ...
