I'm no browser wizard -- just took a few stabs over the past year & a half
at writing some relatively simple Java applets, JavaScript and HTML for the
amusement of my family. No CSS, no frames, nothing at all even remotely
cutting-edge. One Netscape-using sister had dozens of problems with *all*
of these, most eventually determined to be cases of NS not meeting the
appropriate std, and-- far too often --crashing her machine.
Fact is NS dropped the browser ball a couple years ago, then poked holes in
it, then attached industrial-strength vacuum cleaners on the off chance any
air remained.
