QUOTE - That said, what will Netscape do? - UNQUOTE - I think they'll take the seperate applications, browser, mail/news . . . etc, add the usual Netscape related end user combinations, but combine them all into a full Netscape suite. Whether they'll use seperate processes for each application within the suite or combine it as all one process, remains to be seen. Whether they'll switch to using the default Phoenix theme as their default theme, or stick to the bundled Modern/Classic combinations, again that remains to be seen. What I think Netscape should do, is both offer it's users the choice of full application suite, as it's more or less always been, and also offer the choice to download the browser, mail/news . . . etc applications seperately to each users preference, although this is unlikely.
