now this is something I need to look into...I've been asking about that type of feature and nobody has pointed me in the right direction as of yet...Originally posted by Luckster
I have found OmniWeb to be very nice. I like the way it cuts down the ads. It also allows you to selectively accept cookies.
poor netscape...the one that was there before anything else...now the bottom of the barrel...Originally posted by jelloshotsrule
netscape is by far the worst of the ones i've used.
exactly...then Netscape 5 came out...and I think it was because of java...but that took nearly a minute to load it felt like...terrible....that's when I decided never to use Netscape again...Originally posted by jelloshotsrule
yeah, netscape used to be great. until like 4.76 or something... i remember having communicator and it just seemed so much slower than it had before. and so far downhill since then. 2 versions up and yet it's that much worse.
i don't get why they wouldn't fix it. do they not realize it's that slow? or rather, why wouldn't they have realized it was heinously slow before putting it out and work out the bugs... oh well. now we're seeing the future of browsers come out of the woodwork
That seems to be exactly what I've seen..but I'm using IE until Chimera comes along a bit more...Originally posted by Catfish_Man
...does everyone say Omniweb is slow? I'm using 4.1b5 and it's as fast as Chimera on my machine. In order of speed (subjective, I don't care about how fast it actually is, just how fast it feels) this is what it's like on my machine:
1st: Omniweb/Chimera/IE (they're all fast in different ways)
2nd: Mozilla (but it starts waaaaaaay too slow)
For features ( I didn't try Netscape long enough to test it):
1st: IE (just barely)
I think this is what people tend to do. Why? Would you prefer a car that "feels" faster in a race?Originally posted by Catfish_Man
