Re: Sun goes fully open source! [OT]

i used to like IE more teh NS (back in 3.x) but ever since 4.x ive been
devoted to NS.  all the security problems and that whole activeX thing
bugs me.  that and the fact that i got mod_roaming for netscape, to update
my prefs/bookmarks/etc so my 500bookmarks are always available wherever i
may be. only thing i'd chjange about netscape is make different binaries
for each app(composer/navigatgor/mail/news) so if one crashes it doesnt
bring all of em down.
