Netscape vs. Nitrous Oxide

According to lemay@netcom.com:

Amongst some folks I know, Netscape 2.0 is being affectionately (or, sometimes, insultingly) referred to simply as N20. N20, in case you didn't know, is also the chemical symbol for Nitrous Oxide, aka whippits, aka laughing gas.

Oh, like I can resist this.
