Netscape _IS_ a standard browser. I'm not going to let myself be stuck in the
old says of NCSA & CERN. Sure, using Lynx is fine for data searches/retrevial,
but the web has changed (mutated) so much over the past 4 years that Lynx
cut it anymore for doing the Really Neat Stuff. Confining myself to old HTML
wont help me get a job.
On one hand, I could look after the guy with the text based broweser, but if I'm
a marketing director, or a programmer with some hot new Java ideas, I'm going
to go for on the of the big browsers.
IMHO, of course ;)
