Not yet. But remember that it's based on Mozilla, so if you know newest Mozilla, you'll know newest Netscape...

In Netscape there are some features added by default: java, flash, al messanger etc. Mozilla comes without them (you can add this software). For me Mozilla is faster.

the latest mozilla version is also always more 'newer' than the latest netscape version.

netscape tends to take a mozilla version, test it for a while and then they add some stuff to it and by the time it comes out mozilla probably already has 2 newer releases with more functionality

I'd personally go with Mozilla every time because Netscape adds a load of junk like AIM, net2phone and Realplayer, which if I want I can download seperately. Netscape also sticks advertisements everywhere (e.g. shop@Netscape buttons).

There is one advantage of Netscape - if you dual boot, you can symlink all your messages to the Netscape mailbox running in the Windows directory, so that whichever OS you boot, you'll always have the same set of messages. Clever huh?

Unfortunately, you can't do this in Mozilla as it appears to set up a session ID like CORBA.

As soon as I buy myself a terabyte of RAM, and a quad processor system, I'll try it out. Netscape 6 is a memory hog, I imagine what 7 will look like! But then again... They may have improved on their memory usage... Anyone know?

I screwed up

Do not know exactly what happened. But I installed the #7 in a diff location and it reset all of my mozilla 0.9.9 and my mozilla 1.0 rc2.

Never could get it to run, booted it up one time. After that....poof nothing.
