I thought that was (relatively) old news (e.g., a few months old).  I've been
using Opera in place of Netscape for some sites (though it doesn't do
JavaScript afaik, so it can't replace Netscape), and have seen the usual ones
which offer to upgrade my browser.  There was a followup which amounted to a
disclaimer by someone at M$ which stated that other browsers would work, but
the "experience" wouldn't be as good.  (Terminology like that leaves me
with the impression that they don't have anything of interest to me on their
site, except some interesting pitfalls).
