I am very impressed with the features the of Opera browser... It seems I find more all the time.
I believe Opera acceptance is going to make some big gains in the coming months. I would not be suprised to see it surpass NS6 by mid-year (or sooner!).
Great product... awesome browser!
IE4 losing the most ground (to IE6) and NN4.x dwindling away "...I'm melting! Oh the misery!"

The writing is on the wall for Netscape... or so it seems!
The Jan 2002 stats are based on 140 million visitors so far this month.
Cheers all, and Happy New Year.
I'm wondering, are the OEMs preloading a Java VM before they ship the units to the retailers? I heard that most OEMs planned to do this.
Can anyone hazard a guess as to how many of the IE6 machines out there are Java-applet challenged?
I'll bet that not a whole lot of folks are bothering with the 5-meg download that MS offers. From my logs of a 3-meg download, I'd guess that most folks are either lacking the patience or the bandwidth to manage it.
I have this Java applet doing something on my site that nothing else can do. Before I wrote it in Java, it was an on-the-fly GIF plus an image map, but the Java has more interactivity than the old GIF. Last year I determined that only 11 percent of those who accessed the page weren't using Java. Therefore, I abandoned the GIF as too CPU-intensive and also unnecessary.
Then Bill comes along and gives Java the shaft. Now I'm getting nervous that this 11 percent will start creeping up as IE6 and XP begin polluting the market.
I guess I'll have to write some code to track the percentages that aren't using Java, and also determine how many of these deadbeats are IE6 users, so that I can get a sense of what the future portends.
Thanks a lot, Bill. The nine states want to make Bill put the Java back. Me too.
Here is a site I visit a dozen times a month. (stats [extremetracking.com]). Notice how Opera 3 is tracked? Opera 3 was the last Opera version to use a pure "opera" agent string. I've been using Opera 4 through 6 since Dec 1, 1999. Where are the Opera 4-6 visits? They aren't there because Extreme tracking doesn't track Opera correctly.
