Ok. I want every blogger out there who reads this site to go right now and download (then install) the latest version of Netscape's browser (I think it's 7.2), and then test your site against it. Some of you will find your site doesn't display properly, and others not at all. I tend to use IE at home, but at work I'm a Netscape guy, and it bugs me when my favorite blogs make me go and open a different browser window. It's a free download, so what's stoppin' ya?

We test against the two major browsers (and if anyone out there running Opera or some other "one-off" is having trouble, let me know), and you should too!

No worries! You don't run a blog, so you're fine!

The last time I told someone their site was unreadable in Netscape (Mozilla, actually), I got bitched out.

My husband once tested his blog on 8 different browsers on different platforms. Looked great, until someone on a different browser-OS combo told him it wasn't readable at all. There's such a thing as overtesting, but I don't think testing for IE and Netscape qualifies; it's just common courtesy.
