Well, on 01-Dec-2003 (that last day for which I can easily call up stats
from home), my site (http://www.rhul.ac.uk/) has the following visitors :

 1 Microsoft Internet Explorer 648,214 86.53% 8,561 
 2 Netscape Navigator 62,627 8.36% 410 
 3 Netscape Compatible 14,741 1.96% 289 
 4 Others 22,945 3.06% 111 
 5 Opera 519 0.06% 6 
 6 Real Player G2 12 0.00% 0 

 Total For Browsers Above  749,058  100.00%  9,377 

So summing over Netscape & Netscape-compatible, we were already
seeing 10.32% if our visitors using Netscape; looking at the 
NS stats alone, we see :

 1 Netscape 5.0 22,825 36.44% 167 
 2 Netscape 4.78 10,035 16.02% 28 
 3 Netscape 7.1 1,539 2.45% 19 
 4 Netscape 7.02 1,225 1.95% 19 
 5 Netscape 4.7 734 1.17% 17 
 6 Netscape 4.79 1,959 3.12% 16 
 7 Netscape 7.0 1,249 1.99% 14 
 8 Netscape 4.76 547 0.87% 12 
 9 Netscape 4.75 1,603 2.55% 10 
 10 Netscape 4.08 4,967 7.93% 10 
 11 Netscape 6.2 704 1.12% 9 
 12 Netscape 4.77 833 1.33% 8 
 13 Netscape 4.73 3,198 5.10% 8 
 14 Netscape 4.5 755 1.20% 8 
 15 Netscape 4.06 425 0.67% 8 
 16 Netscape 6.1 595 0.95% 8 
 17 Netscape 4.6 334 0.53% 7 
 18 Netscape 7.01 164 0.26% 6 
 19 Netscape 6.2.3 205 0.32% 5 
 20 Netscape 4.72 242 0.38% 5 

 Total For Browsers Above  54,138  86.44%  384  
 
So of that 10.32%, about 40% were pre-Mozilla, giving a Moz-visitor
percentage of circa 6%; it doesn't seem impossible that that could
have climbed to 9% by today (I'll check tomorrow, when I can next
easily generate stats.).
