Aprox. one year ago, when we started to design our company website, we considered NS 4.7 line (mainly because I am part of the team and I used NS :-) But we will soon look into the site once again, applying some css styles, with no care of IE 3 or NS 4.x. I use Mozilla here and I am fully satisfied. I used Mozilla on P300 too, and itpushed my comp to the limits, so I sticked back to NS4. It was memory issue however, as 64MB is not enough. OTOH, P300 is archaic piece of hw nowadays :-) I would consider only Mozilla - NS6, IE5, Opera 5, when designing the site. -pekr-
