Is it alright to use? I'm using Communicator 4.76 right now and lately it's been wanting to freeze my system up. I've had this happen before and usually this means I need to start looking for a newer version of Netscape*....but this time version 6 looks like the only upgrade. I use Explorer as well but like using both browsers.

*I'm not kidding about this either - maybe I'm crazy but I've started having trouble with older versions of Netscape before and voila! I check and there's a new version available which seems to cure whatever problem I'm having (usually Netscape crashes).

I formatted yesterday, and I installed Netscape 4.76 and it's already giving me major problems like error messages and hanging constantly. I don't particuliarly like IE, but I mean Netscape has been sucking so bad it's not even funny anymore.

I know what you mean. It would be bad enough if Netscape crashed but when it freezes my system....

And I know Netscape is the culprit - system is very stable using other software. But there are still some things I like about Netscape so I continue putting up with it...don't know why.

Also, it's now free! I just added to to about 30 systems for users. I don't have much experience with it because I wasn't willing to pay for it, so I'm interested in user reactions.

interesting ... b/c my Netscape 4.75 kept freezing today for the first time ... so I installed Netscape 6, and it's working fine so far (it's been 6 hours and no crash yet)

what's your job at the other forum?
