"What I like to call a "Slowser," instead of a "Browser.""

May 08, 2005  |  By mrklarinet

 |  Version: Netscape 7.2

Pros

Faster than Opera, but barely.

Cons

1: Slower than Firefox and IE. 2: All the AOL junk on it; it automatically signed me in to an account that I had closed, which means that I will have to call AOL to make sure that they don't start charging me again! I only keep it installed to test my personal website for compatibility.

"Better than IE"

April 26, 2005  |  By rzscott0509

 |  Version: Netscape 7.2

Pros

This browser is somewhat good but i think Mozilla Firefox is more stable and faster and more secure. And this is mostly a copy of firefox but firefox is way better

Cons

slower than firefox.

"I like it"

April 23, 2005  |  By beta.zero

 |  Version: Netscape 7.2

Pros

I was somewhat hesitant to switch from IE to Netscape, but I don't know why. Netscape's tabbed browsing is always a plus, and I also enjoy the availablity of customisation. Security also seems to beat IE into the dirt.

Netscape does have some funky looking defaults, but if you have any computer experience at all you can set it up in a way that you like.

Cons

Netscape has some cosmetic short-comings compared to IE, although these don't interfere with browsing. Alt hovers don't work, and 100% width dividers don't display as they should. Scrollbars do not display as customised.

"I love Netscape!"

March 20, 2005  |  By Blue_59

 |  Version: Netscape 7.2

Pros

Netscape is really fast. Seems to be not as cluttered as Mozilla. Both the same speed so I would give both a thumbs up and everyone should try them.

Cons

Sucks that it is such a big file, don't let the first little file fool you. I would recommend to people that don't like to wait to download things to download Mozilla Suite, it is the same speed, a bit more confusing to inexperienced users but didn't take me long to learn so I am sure you can.

"Best browser I ever seen"

March 15, 2005  |  By emielklaphake

 |  Version: Netscape 7.2

Pros

The new version of Netscape has incredible new features.

The anti pop-up bar is much more effective than the one in IE.

The mail possibilities in this new version are handy and easy, which is different than Mozilla Firefox, for example.

All together I think this browser is the best, particularly at security, mail features, speed and userfriendlyness.

Cons

This version may seem a little messy, but It's adjustible for those who know more than just click a few buttons at the desktop!
