"Before you read this and think I shouldn't be allowed to use a keyboard you should know that I like Mozilla. I like the standards compliance. I like the customizable interface, I use it, and I plan to continue using it."

"Raise your hand if you dislike the AOL service. It is a little blurry from where I sit on the Internet but from here it looks like most of you raised your hands. Besides only being able to use AOL with their service, what is AOL's feature set? Let's see: mail and newsgroups, integrated chat, they have something to make web pages with, favorite places, you can use ftp and, oh yeah, you can surf the web. All of that in one easy to use, colorful interface."

"...I sort of wonder where AOL/Netscape is going with Mozilla? Will Mozilla be put on so many CD-ROMs that they become annoying like AOL 5.0 is? I know the preview release is a preview, but from what little previewing I've done it seems to use about the same amount of resources as AOL 5.0. Will Mozilla replace AOL and has AOL found a way to cut development costs?"
