5. What are Gmail's system requirements?
Gmail currently supports the following browsers:
* Microsoft IE 5.5 and newer (Windows)
* Netscape 7.1 and newer (Windows, Macintosh, Linux)
* Mozilla 1.4 and newer (Windows, Macintosh, Linux)
* Mozilla Firefox 0.8 and newer (Windows, Macintosh, Linux)
No Netscape 4.x!
who is still using NN4.x?
What percentage of people on the net use that browser?
Statistically almost no-one: my stats show about 0.2% NN4.X.
I'm surprised at the lack of support for Opera, though tbh it renders almost exactly the same as IE6 (but without the bugs of course! ;) )
My stats are UK only though, what's it like on your side of the Atlantic?

Never believe your own stats. NS4 users who may find it difficult or impossible to use your site will never be repeat visitors. IE and NS6 visitors may visit regularly, thus falsely puching up the relativity between the IE and NS4 stats. NS4 users are probably at least double or quadruple the figure you have stated and will be mainly universities or companies that refuse to upgrade for security reasons. If you target these audiences (which Gmail should be - they are targetting everyone) then it should at least function in NS4 even if it does not look visually pixel perfect.
