exactly, communicator was a resource hog and simply the only (usable) browser for linux/bsd. Opera had some issues (not showing everything correct) with the HTML world of IE and was shareware.
Firefox was not super in its pre 0.9 versions, but IMO became worse after version 3. (Coincidentally, this was also the case with Netscape Navigator 3 growing into Communiicator 4).
That said, Firefox has proved to be an indispensible tool for web development (firebug).

The Tao is like a glob pattern: used but never used up. It is like the extern void: filled with infinite possibilities.
