Hmm, I was also thinking good about responsiveness on the security
issue (though the way they behave regarding html extensions is still
not fair imo, but that's another debate), and I have modified my
netscape security page accordingly, but, dropping Linux as the list of
UNIX supported host is certainly not a good thing at all, I
urge/pray/suggest... that listening Netscape folks here try to put
it back, PLEASE (It is not that difficult to compile under linux is it ?)

Or maybe it is just a missing item in the list ? [i hope!]
