Yeah, I guess you're right -- we'll all probably be moving over to
Amaya soon. <g>

Actually, if Netscape does lose out to M$, it will be through its own
fault.  They once had a lot of backing from the web community, but
through arrogance and things like blink and cookies and bloat and
tag-madness lost many folk's respect.

But I don't see M$ doing any better, and of course at this time they
are basically restricted to the tourist market.  Certainly they are not
coming up with anything I would be able to run -- unless I bought a
Windoz box.  And that ain't likely.
