Netscape 7.2

  Digital 14:58 30 Sep 2004

Just installed latest Netscape (7.2) & some sites say I'm using an out of date browser & I should update! Anyone know why?

Netscape is considered stick-in-the-mud, old fashioned and boring which, compared with some of the modern browsers like the excellent Firefox, Opera and such, it is.

Try one of the others and see how they stack up against Netscape.

Thanks €dstowe, but I like Netscape! Guess I'm just an old stick-in-the-mud then. I have tried Opera & others but just come back to Netscape each time. In my defence though I should say I do use Firefox.

We have Netscape installed on all machines for website testing but, the consensus here is for Firefox as the most used browser followed by Opera then Netscape. I.E. doesn't figure at all except for sites which don't work with the others.

Should have added - if you like it, use it!!
