I just loaded Windows XP Pro. My wife prefers Netscape, she used 4.75 on our old Win98SE system. I remember when Netscape 6.0 came out, it was a nightmare. We like using separate browsers/email programs because it keeps us out of each others email and favorite places. I prefer Internet Explorer, she likes Netscape. Which version of Netscape works best on XP ?

Version Internet Exporer 6.0.26 You are joking right? What's the difference between a back button, favorites and an address bar? IE is wrapped so deeply into XP I can't imagine a sane person trying to sort it out.

[url=http://www.mozilla.org/]Mozilla 1.0[/url]. Mozilla is the open-source version of Nutscrape and works great under XP. I find it friendlier than Internet Explioter and faster than commercial Nutscrape.

I've been using Netscape 6.2 as a secondary browser and I've been pretty satisfied with the performance under XPPro. It's *much* more stable than the old 4.xx I was using on a win98 install.

I was a netscape user since it first came out (anti-M$ and all) but when AOL took it over, the quality when down hill QUICK. I stopped using it at home since then. I use IE on XPpro w/o any problems. However at work, the company was using Netscape on win95/98/2k and the problems got progressivly worse (company software ain't too good in the first place) The recently authorised use of IE and I put it on my machine and now I have no inter/intra net problems! [:)] I wish netscape had stayed independant and kicked M$'s @ss.

Get [url=www.opera.com]Opera[/url] for a change of pace. Personally, I stay with IE. To many damn web sites are written for it.

The posts in here are right on. Mozilla 1.0 is the way to go, much better than recent Netscapes which, as mentioned, went to hell after AOL bought it. Mike
