This is semantic silliness. The outfits that make Netscape, Mozilla et al are ultra-quick to tell you that they are marketing not just a browser, but "Communications Suites" or equivalent verbiage. Communications Suites turn out to mean a browser bundled with mail reader, news reader, and some other stuff. It is only our half-smart savvy-blinkers that conflates the two and calls the whole suite a "browser."

Netscape has a mail and news client as well, which is not the browser.But I am a dumb user. I installed a browser --- where did that mail and news client come from? What is the difference? I think it is all the web, you know? I mean, I want it to all be the web, why should I have to learn the difference? And I'm right because I'm the user.
