Are there currently any issues or problems with Netscape 6? Is it worth downloading, or best to avoid?

Also, can you install and still retain an earlier version?

You can have as many versions of Netscape on one machine as you want -- that's one benefit of NOT being integrated into the OS the way MSIE is.

I still wouldn't recommend NN6 to the average user, but for us designers, well, I think we need to view our work in this browser. It's showing up in my server logs more and more, and it does throw light on problems with non-standard code. I don't want to be showing bad pages to early adopters.
