A Final Word
In this column we have introduced the new Netscape 6. We explained the technology behind this project, Mozilla and Gecko. We showed that Open Source is a great way to develop projects. We commented on the tricky situation we are at, having to support three major browsers. We taught you how to detect for Netscape 6, and how to write three-way browser-independent scripts. We recommended what features to avoid in Netscape Navigator and which ones to replace in Netscape Navigator.
