Most company networks:

o Download over a T1 line (very fast), not a 14,400 modem

o Are of course local - not on a distant server.

Still, downloading Acrobat files over my own local net is slow.
Thus, Adobe is working on a way to download only one PDF page at
a time (not the entire document). That's one reason why Amber
is interesting.

The same logic applies to most Web products (such as Video) - they're
slow over the Internet and quick locally. Thus, one guess is that
Netscape 2.0 plug-ins will be extensively used to distribute internal
documents over local Websites.

And (BTW), the final Netscape 2.0 product came out this weekend.
