to use or not to use?

By mother61 ·
I tried to use Netscape 6.0 when it first came out. It was horrible! It slowed my computer up and interfered with lots of things. I removed it immediately and went back to Netscape 4.75. I see that version 6.1 is now available. Has anyone used it?What is your opinion? Have they removed the glitches from 6.1? Would you recommend using it instead of the 4.75 i am using now?

to use or not to use?

I've also seen 6.1... and really cannot recommend it. Too slow and yes, it still crashes (at least on the one Win98SE computer i tested it with). I didn't like it and went back to 4.77

What I do recommend is downloading and using 4.77 or 4.78. Both have fixes to 4.75 -- which should improve Java and other NN issues from 4.75

ps. you can get either 4.77 or 4.78 from www.download.com and searching for "netscape 4.77" or "netscape 4.78"

I followed her advice and upgraded to 4.78. So far I have not crashed, but opening up Java still takes quite a long time. Thanks for the help.

What were they thinking???? I used to love Netscape till ver. 6. I did try 6.1, but it's not an improvement. The interface is just awful. I think it has something to do with AOL trying to change Netscape to fit their image. Big mistake. As slow as Netscape runs now, they'll probably sell it to Microsoft. Maybe that was the plan.
Cheers.
