Is it safe?

Is it safe to install both Netscape 6.2 and Firefox on the same PC? I ask because I used to get problems when installing Netscape and Mozilla 1 a while ago. I would like to test in Netscape as people are reporting problems in that browser for a site I work on.

I've had no problems with it - although I do get told by one of the browsers to use a different profile if the other browser is already open and using (say) the default profile.

I have no problems with 2 versions each of Mozilla, Netscape, and Firefox being installed on my Windows PC.

no problem, have probably 20 versions of gecko stuff running, as noted, some can only be opened individually or they open using the same gecko engine. My fault for not creating new profile for each one like you're supposed to.
