What does the Moz shift mean for Nutscrape?

in Mac Software edited January 2014
I know its a moot point for we Mac users, but with MSFT discontinuing IE stand-alone releases, will Netscape transition like Moz to a 2 program deal for browsing and mail to directly compete with MS products? Could this potentially be a major swing and in effect re-ignite the fabled browser war? What do you guys think?

    I dunno. That's a good question though. I love that Mozilla is separating the package though. Honestly, how many people use the email program in Mozilla/Netscape? It's always been fairly meh if not awful. But the Netscape folks have always tried to push this feature. Hopefully they'll drop it also.

    If nothing else, bundling Composer/Mail/Irc/etc is a flagrant waste of bandwidth. Also, I only recently learned how to compile just the browser and not the extras. You wouldn't believe how long it takes to build Mozilla from source on a TiBook 867mhz.
