    Does anybody still use Netscape? It's just Firefox with a lot of added Netscape/AOL ads :rolleyes:

    I jumped from Netscape 4 to IE6 in 2001, and at the time I felt like I was the last Netscape user on the planet.

    How odd.

    I can't see many Safari or Firefox users switching, but I guess I'd need to see it first.

    Whether or not you use Netscape 9, this is a very good thing.

    the last useful thing netscape (8) had was the built-in use of IE's engine on Windows. firefox does this now thru ieTab, so once again netscape has nothing to offer, except suckyness(tm)

    hmph - i thought Netscape was dead. I don't even use Firefox, so i doubt i'd use this, but who knows..

    until version 4.0, NS was good. after that, I jumped to Mozilla, never continuously used IE.

    BTW, u can't assume the guy was using internet at the time of NS 1.0

    I'm using Netscape 8.1 at school right now ONLY because I refuse to use IE6 while other computers have IE7. It's really, really slow to load up but it's somewhat snappier after it gets going.

    in that case, why not just go for firefox, NS 8.1 is based on firefox, with extra junks.
