Yes, but now we're at the point where it get's funny... that i couldn't get
to work with the Mozilla suite.
But that's not the only trouble. Most of the browser plugins suck, Java does
run but has it's quirks (more then the usuall) and most of the fun i get is
with all "multimedia" thingies. 
Only thing that does work nearly everytime is compile from source ;-)

Reminds me of the DOS -> Win transition, and the later 16bit -> 32bit one.
No great surprise :-)
