So does Netscape 2.0. At least, the Mac version does. I assume the
other ones do as well. (One of the first things I do whenever I try a
new browser nowadays is to start up a perl server script that just
listens for a connection, then shows me what's sent - chapter 7 of the
camel book - and point the browser at it. You learn lots of
interesting things that way.)

*shrug* The Mac version actually uses less memory than 2.0. Although
it *still* doesn't have Java for 68k Macs. *sigh*

But this is getting a bit off the subject.
