Netscape Navigator only runs on a handful of platforms, which
coincidentally comprise about 70% of the Internet client market.  Other
"open" browsers, such as Mosaic, are available in source format which
allows recompilation for every platform that contains a C compiler --
thus reaching a great majority of the Internet community. > 90%

For example, I can't run Netscape on my Unix box at home.  Not
supported.  Mosaic *is*.  If you use proprietary Netscape extensions in
your HTML, I can't see your site.  You must decide whether the benefit
gained from using a proprietary extension visible to 70% of the market
outweighs the other 30% who can't see your data.  You *can* choose to
use a standard non-proprietary extension instead and reach all of your

Your choice.  But don't be surprised when the 30% complain.
