    Firefox has announced that Windows and Mac versions will receive an
    interface upgrade but that the LINUX VERSION will remain as is.

    So now the Linux propagandist Roy Schestowitz has to take the focus
    off that little tidbit by claiming Netscape is leaving Firefox behind.

    Face it Roy, Linux is ignored because it's market share is miniscule.
    Why write for an OS that virtually nobody is interested in?

    Netscape is antique technology, much like Linux so maybe they are a
    good match.

    Right. Nobody uses *nix. I guess nobody means NASA, DND, ESA, Lucasfilms
    (Remember Newman from Seinfeld on Jurasic park? that wasn't just an
    accident he was using a Sun workstation). Virtually any university and
    countless others. You are under the ignorant misinterpretation that
    linux is incompatible with *nices which is nonsence. Any app for *nix
    that has the source code provided will compile on linux with very little
    changes if any at all.
