This is python-esque. 5 is right out.

Netscape 6.0 soon available with annoying AOL
              features! A year after being acquired by America
              Online, Netscape is preparing to unveil the first major
              new Netscape release since the 4.0 browser was
              unleashed in 1997. The company plans to release a
              preview version of Netscape 6.0 -- skipping the
              long-delayed 5.0 -- in April. 6.0 will feature a number
              of embellishments, among them easy access to AOL
              buddy lists and shopping areas... (New York Times

A window of the new browser can display America Online buddy lists
        and send instant messages to them. The mail feature will let users read
        corporate and personal e-mail in one place. And the browser is filled
        with buttons and features that drive users to America Online's shopping
        area and the advertising-supported areas of an expanded Netcenter
        Internet portal.
