Netscape Gaining Ground?

Christian Schaller writes in with this info:
"I found this link on Slashdot.org, to an article in Zdnet. It says that Netscape is pulling away from IE in the corporate market in a new study. Just the sort of news the mozillaZine readers like to hear -- I did at least."

Guessing that corp's know that MSIE 4.0 (since tied into the OS) can crash the OS itself easily. Netscape can too, but hell, anything can under Win98. NT sn't MUCH better :(
Thank god for Linux, it's near perfection.
It's nice to know we're gaining ground in an important area-the corporate arena. One would tink that Microsoft had the businesses in a bag. I don't know what the corporations are thinking but once Netscape 5 comes out and anyone can do whatever they want to the code, Microsoft just won't be able to keep up. MSIE won't last beyond version 6

arielb, those are some pretty powerful words..
saying that IE wont last past version 6??
But i do think that Nescape5.0 will get lots of people coming back.
Think about it. MSIE is free-so is Netscape. We can have lots of programmers working on it for free. It's alot of money for MS to match the Mozilla effort. Right now we still don't have a solid browser yet but once it's done we can get the engines rolling and it will be very hard for MS to get their money's worth. They will still try...for version 6. But the future of the internet is in Mozilla

IE5 is not such a great improvement over previous versions like 3.0 and 4.0 were,Microsoft is now sleeping well assured that NSCP can't harm them,while NSCP is busy improving itself.now that's good news!

Saying that their will be no IE 6 is a pretty big statement. Thats like saying that WinNT5 will be the last MS OS. It simply won't happen, unless our friends in the government get their heads out of their asses.

I consider this good news, but I would like to remember that Microsoft, usualy, gets the home computer to then move into the corporate world. Once it has, say 90%, of the home market. There would be no way to stop MS, so called, "standards" to gain power. And once those "standards" are used everywhere they will conquer the corporate world.
