When you say that last sentence do you mean that MS may eventually
have a Unix version of their browser on the market?  On Unix, I have
a much larger choice of browsers than on the Mac.  In fact the only
major browser that I don't have access to on Unix is MSIE.  MSIE may
even be a welcome product for Unix platforms, if/when it ever comes
out.  In fact, I'd get rid of Netscape altogether (finally).

PS, the more versions of Unix supported the better.
