    But let's give the former number one web browser a proper funeral

  3. Actually on DW's suggestion I'm using Camino. Firefox for Macs. Netscape deserves a special place in internet/browser history. For many including myself it was our first browser.

    I still have NS 4.7 on this Windows 98 antique. Haven't used it in ages. And, yes, it was a faster browser than Internet Explorer.

    If your using FireFox, you are in a way using Netscape since they are both Mozilla based.

    If your interested in the next "netscape", then check out SeaMonkey

    I suspect a severe lack of garmentage.

    At the time of when it mattered, Internet Explorer 4.0 was actually the better browser. It is definitely not that way now, though I have high hopes that the competition from Firefox and Safari will cause Microsoft to really work hard at IE8. They have the ability to make a truly great product, they have done it before.

    My first browser was actually NCSA's Mosaic. The great granddaddy of all browsers.
