    "WAS A GREAT BROWSER"

    May 22, 2011  |   By mhs420

    Pros

    nETSCAPE WAS ONE OF THE BEST IN ITS HEY-DAY. If it is ever revived and put back together from scratch, I'm sure it will once again reign among the best of browsers next to Firefox Google chrome Opera and Avant.

    Cons

    No longer maintained browser no up dates or anything. Biggest downfall was the way it looked at IE based websites. Other than that use to be in the top 5.

    Summary

    While still usable, netscape may need to be revived for the next generation. My browser have changed over the yrs on which to use. First was netscape navigator/comminicator then was Opera Maxthon An now I stay with Avant.I have tried the functionality of other browser and while a lot are richer in features, most those features are wasted space. Avant allows online storage of bookmarks and autofils. The nice thing that Netscape had was its interface with AOL. and that it automatically logged you into your email from your pc. A down fall to netscape was it's intercompatibility with IE based sites. For some reason both AOL and Netscape did not load them all the time and when they did it took what seemed to be hours.
