but netscape customers apparently were happy to let editors do those chores for them. when they voted, it was with their feet. since september, when netscape made other changes that affected readership, traffic at netscape.com has dropped 28%, reports hitwise.
If you take out that fact netscape’s traffic is actually up. Additionally, we lose the browser bundle deals (hp, etc), and those were +10% of the traffic.
add to that fact that netscape was losing traffic for three straight years and you are left with that fact that the new site stopped the three year slide almost instantly… and started growing the traffic!
