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.

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.
