Stick with Mozilla, you will thank me for the suggestion. Haven't tried NS 7 myself, but if Gizmo says it is way slower than Mozilla and OW, then why bother. <br><br>Mozilla and OW rule the roost. Gotta try another OW sneakypeek, the one I have is pretty old and they just keep knocking them out. What I have now is the 4.1 Beta 5 of OW. OK, off to the sneakypeek download page.<br><br>
others on the web have claimed it is faster than anything so far.. but Mozilla would surely be as fast <br><br>others have claimed it renders texts and pages better than other browsers<br><br>I am totally peeved with IE.... and my beautiful old car.. (Netscape 4.7) just does not do all of the things that websites want me to see, though generally that is a good thing.<br><br>I like stabilty and though Mozilla is reported to be good .. it is always having another build.. which means that stability is not always the strong point.<br><br>At least Netscape uses the last most stable build to re-label.<br><br>Though will anyone ever again build a browser as stable as Netscape 4.7?<br><br>It has never crashed and these days all the websites ignore N 4.7 so I am getting much faster loading and rendering these days, since I don't have to load images anymore. <br><br>and as for the netscape crap.. just go to the ftp site and download the full version then before you install, open the config.ini and hack out all the stuff you don't want to install. It is easy..I posted instructions on doing that for Netscape 6.1 Here, under netscape 6.1 changes I will post Netscape 7 instructions sooner or later,.. when I get around to it. <br><br>
believe it or not, I've been using Netscape 7.1 for the past two days at work, and it's working well... its not as pretty as Omniweb, but seems to work better... or at least more reliably.<br><br><br><br>Statistics are like a bikini. What they reveal is suggestive, but what they conceal is vital.<br>-- Aaron Levenstein

Actually, I started on the internet using Netscape 2. I had a PC then. Always used Netscape, and IE only when required by certain sites.<br><br>When I got my Mac in October 2000, Netscape 4.73 came with it. What a load of crap. Crashes, pages reloading twice giving the psychadelic feeling, etc. Started using IE and OE on the Mac. OE worked well. IE kept freezing and crashing now and then. MS then they released theServiceRelease 1, then the 5.1 update and now IE 5.1.4. Now it never crashes.<br><br>But I use Mozilla for all my browsing now. Gecko (Mozilla's browser rendering engine) is amazing! IE for Flash sites and iCab when I'm in the lean mean mode.<br><br>I do know how to do a lean Netscape install. Just pissed at all the crap they bundle.<br><br>--<br>I am Dyslexic of Borg. Fusistance is retile. Your a$$ will be laminated.
I had been using the new Netscape, but then it did something strange on these boards--so strange that I'm not sure what happened. So I'm back to Mozilla.<br><br>And that's true too.--Shakespeare, King Lear

got 8 meg to go and that will take another hour.. what I need is an ISP that is fast enough to make using a fast browser worthwhile on.<br><br>=============================================================<br>| "Behold the Turtle, he maketh no progress ==== until he sticketh out his neck." |<br>=============================================================
