Netscape 6
is it worth me downloading it

 3:07 am on Apr 4, 2001 (gmt 0)

Was curious what people's feelings are about Netscape 6.
I use IE5 or Netscape 4.7 (to check my pages) and have been reluctant to download 6 since I hear so many different stories about it. Is it worth my time?

It is not really worth it.. Go to [mozilla.org...] and get the latest version of what netscape is based on instead. It has less bugs and is less bloated. It is also further down in the browsers evolution. Also, you will be free of all the aol garbage.

One of the nice things about Netscape has always been that you can keep multiple versions on the same machine. So if you want to check out what's happening with 6.0 first hand, you can do it without giving up your current version.

Wish I could do that with the Explorer 6.0 public preview. I'd be checking it out right now.

Thanks for the info on keeping mulitple versions of Netscape on one machine, that was my next question.
