I'm in the camp of F**K NN6! Firmly. Quite frankly, it's the worst browser I've ever seen for the Mac. It consistently cannot display framed sites correctly and it mangles many pages that I've been visiting regularly with no problems in IE5 and NN4. Honestly, there are too many major problems to even begin listing them. It's crap and useless and it's about to become widely used. What a frikkin' nightmare for web developers! The source of the rage isn't overwork or an irrational perspective - it's frustration at having such dreck forced on us.
