    Netscape (Netscape Win98)

    I'm using Netscape 4.77, but its locking up/ freezing frequently, not loading pages correctly. I think I need to update to a newer version, but not sure about which version is the "safest." I've read a lot about problems with the later version of Netscape. So, I'm asking for help about which version (newer than 4.77) of Netscape is the "safest" once to choose. Thanks for your help!

    Hi miladytn

    NOT Netscape 6
    Try ver. 7 if you want to stay with Netscape.
    I opted for Mozilla after AOL and Netscape became "one". I get enough junk from AOL without having it installed on my computer.

    You can get more input by doing a Search on the Lounge for "Netscape" (or Mozilla, if you're interested).

    Have a Great day!!!

    I went to 6.0 and it was so bad I went back to 4.79. I have been afraid to try 7.0 so far.

    As many in the Lounge know, like Ken I went with Mozilla and love it. But I recently started installing Netscape 7.01 on machines at work and it came highly recommended. So far, we haven't had any problems. If one downloads and installs it, be sure you tell it to SAVE the installation files on your hard drive, in case you ever have to install it again or on another machine. You could then put them on a CD if you like or store them wherever you put your downloaded stuff. (When you choose to download, you're initially getting "only" an installer stub which then downloads all the files during installation)
