hmmm - being an ex-Virgin-Net-er, I know that as a back-up policy for people
with weeny computers, certainly up until recently still shipped with Nav3.

...as a result, there are a sizeable bunch of UK Net users who are using
Nav3, and probably will be doing for quite a while. Not everyone wants to
spend money on a whacking great new PC when all they want to do is word
processing or read e-mail and do a bit of shopping - and I think everyone
knows someone in that position. My Mum still uses Windows 3.1. Sure as hell
she's going to be using a 3rd generation browser when she starts up. And if
no other ISP's offer her non-bloatwear browser options, she's going to have
to go with one that does.

Fact of life. Sites for the UK market need to have a V3 enabled version or
display insufferwble ignorance (and loss of potential revenue as a result),
as Ben has pointed out.

And as for text only versions... sheesh, don't get me started.....
