>From a purely web development standpoint, NS 6 is
about 500% better than IE 6 when it comes to rendering
css1/css2/xhtml 1.0/xhtml1.1/XSL correctly (without
starting a regious debate here, my only say on the
matter for all your IE ppl is try using
style="margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto" to
center a BLOCK element (it won't work in IE).  This is
css1 (which someone IE6 fully supports but can't do
this, do I need to go on, if so, I have a whole
shopping cart of css that IE6 still fails at)).  If
you use the preloader in in NS 6.2, it actually loads
quicker than IE6 on my w2k box (pages and the actually
browser), its has ~ the equivelent memory footprint of
IE6 (if not smaller most of the time.  Currently
iexplorer.exe is taking up 6 MB more than ns 6.2).

The only issue I would have came across is it still
like to freeze up on java appletts.

Would like to say though, that if you like using
Netscape, just give it up and use Mozilla.  Netscape
is build on mozilla branches anyways Mozilla put out
version updates way more than Netscape (night builds,
montly *releases*).
