Unhappy Difference in web browsers?

Does anyone know the differences between web browsers for RH8 - I have Mozilla 1.0.1 installed from distribution, and considering upgrading to newest version 1.4, but curious about what is different between that and Netscape 7? I thought Mozilla was basically Netscape, any opinions as to difference, is one better than other?

version 1.0.1 is one of their stable releases, 1.4 is from their unstable branch, it has a few more features but will crash more. netscape is basically mozilla,(all real development is done in the mozilla builds) with alot of glop and bloat added in.

I use mozilla 1.4 - I don't think I've had a crash yet. Netscape is based on mozilla 1.02 (from memory) with some little tidbits extra and some branding.

I tried Netscape 4.?, Mozilla, Konqueror, and Netscape 6, all of which were bundled with SuSE 7.1, and found that I liked Netscape 6 best. All the rest seemed to either have problems with displaying pages properly, or with accepting cookies. Netscape 6 showed no problems yet, and seems to work seamlessly.
