    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.
