I haven't heard any good reports on Netscape 6. Pity! ....but how good can we expect
it to be? ....isn't Netscape now owned by Microsoft!!! ....and don't they already
have the Internet Explorer browser?!?! (Just call me a cynic!...lol)
I haven't tried Netscape 6....but I like my Netscape 4.7, although it doesn't seem to
cope very well with the occasional website....they seem to do something, and then I'm
unable to click thru links, and I have to go offline and reboot to fix the
Also....(lol)....on the email spell-check, the 'Ignore all' button doesn't seem to
work properly. I would have thought it could be used to skip ALL potential spelling
errors, but it doesn't, it does exactly the same as 'Ignore' ....skips one at a time.
Does anyone else have this problem? Is it a 'bug' in Netscape 4.7, or is it just MY
in Adelaide, South Australia.
Netscape is owned by AOL. I used to think by using Netscape, I was
helping the small company. Since Netscape was bought out by AOL, I no
longer feel "guilty" for having gone to OE.
I still prefer the Netscape browser and would prefer Netscape email if
it had not kept losing my email messages.
I never did learn how many messages Netscape could handle, but I must
have had over 5000 in the inbox, before the problems became too frequent to
chance using it any longer.
I believe that Netscape is owned by AOL, not Microsoft. Quite a bit
different. But not good.

Dear Carol Hepburn,
Thanks for the directions on ridding ourselves of the pestilence. It seems to have put itself into everything.
Wish me luck. Ken H

Ken, Perhaps you or someone else can post to the list about how you
actually did get rid of Netscape 6 for people like Antoinette who want to
know how. Probably you have to go through the whole thing of copying your
user file and then going to Add/Delete on Control Panel. Then I guess you
have to reinstall Netscape 4.75 or whatever.
Fortunately for me, I'm of the "wait and see" school and downloaded the
file but didn't install it. Think I'll just delete the file and be happy
I'm ahead. Maybe complaints should be registered to Netscape and maybe
they'll fix what's wrong. I had heard they eliminated some of the good
features of the earlier product but what those things are I don't know.
I'm really a Netscape fan and don't want to use the "other" one although I
do have it available if needed.
