Is the mozilla organization (mozilla/firefox/camino browsers) not associated with Netscape anymore? I thought I heard sometime ago that they've disassociated themselves from Netscape, who in turn are owned by AOL/TimeWarner.
Netscape spun mozilla.org off to create Navigator 5 because they knew it was going to take a complete rewrite and they didn't have the resources. AOL/Netscape provided most of the funding and staffing until AOL eliminated all of Netscape except the namee. I suspect almost all the original Netscape employees are gone by now and I'm sure the AOL funding is greatly reduced or eliminated. That whole conglomerate, AOL/Time/Warner, is falling apart now.

Anyway, the reason I was asking about AOL/Netscape was because another web developer (he is such an IE proponent it is not even funny) was telling me that AOL/Netscape was still supporting Mozilla. And that's the reason he was saying that mozilla is such a crappy browser! And that everything should be developed for IE only!
