Personally i don't like Netscape because it includes too many extra programs and as zeky said just basically based on Mozilla. So if you just want to surf the web, mozilla is a good browser

Nah, I think Netscape looks a little prettier. That's not to say Mozilla doesn't rule, but just that a default Netscape looks better than a default Mozilla.

Use neither and use Galeon...


And rverlander,

Why do you always mention AOL in negative ways as I've taken notice from some other posts of yours? Sure, I think they suck too, I work for TimeWarner/Roadrunner (you don't have to tell me) and AOL technically pays my bills so lets stop mentioning these things. Its sort of a personal attack calling MasterC a AOL fan. Just because he likes Netscape doesn't mean a thing. Try to make more constructive posts when someone seems to be expressing their opinion's on a subject or answering someone else's questions.

On my island here the only high speed internet offering is Verizon DSL, so that is my choice of provider. But even if I had the choice, I would not choose AOL because of the price issue amongst other things. They want to charge 20 bux for what others will charge 10, and it's the same thing. Nah, I'm not an AOL fan, but it's not such a bad thing if I were.



But the choice of the 2 questioned, netscape, but as tricky said, Galeon is my choice. It's like that question "If you were the last man on earth, and the only 2 people left were <fill in the blank> and <fill in the blank>, who would you rather spend the rest of your time with? Not a fair choice, but it's still a good idea to choose.

Cool
