I can surely not judge the "release-fitness" of Mozilla M-14, as I am,
what you would perhaps call "just a normal user" and not a developer, and
I am usually "just listening" to the debian-devel mailing list.
But I really must agree with Jacob. There is currently no real open-
source-alternative to netscape, if you want a nice graphical user
interface, features like html 4.0, java and the like. As I
understand, Mozilla intends to fill that gap. I am personally using
text-mode-browsers like lynx or Emacs-W3-mode quite often, but
considering that the web-pages are having much more graphics and extended
functions, this is surely not the thing for the future.
