mozilla, while it is getting better (huge improvements in the last few
months) is still not usable. it's *almost* usable, but way too annoying
and buggy and unfinished to use on a daily basis.
give it another 6 months, a year at most, and it will be a complete and
superior replacement to netscape. it shows a lot of promise.
in the meantime, if you want a decent graphical web browser for linux
that mostly works and renders most pages reasonably well, then netscape
is the only thing available.
