Academic professionals using Unix? We had higher-than-average NS4 use
until relatively recently, because of our particular market (academic
publishing). Mozilla and NS7 have now cannibalised the NS4 market share
(thankfully - now we can start using CSS for more than just text
colours). It's running at about 2.2% for this month so far.
