its a shame that this browser has been discontinued
v9.0.0.6 is a major, MAJOR improvement over v7 which is the last version i used
they have also improved the theme over the firefox one a great deal

Its still good I am downloading it so one day I can show my kids. To bad AOL bought it and destroyed it and now has killed it. Oh well you can still get Mozilla the orignal Netscape.

Now i know its dead. This latest update puts this annoying message every once in awhile mentioning the end of the line and whether to update to firefox or not. That alone is enough for me to give this version its death bed. Luckily the version that was released a month ago i still have and I'm using that one.

downloaded and installed this latest update, still love it
i wish they were not killing it off though because Netscape 9 is a major improvement

@Scary Guy you are stupid, rating a product 1 which you didn't even install.

I think the rating actually went up because it died. I saw this today and thought to myself "I thought they killed it off to die a horrible death... in a fire". Ok so updates stop in March? I can wait a week :D

Great Browser.

As of March 1st Aol is killing Netscape Navigator and will no longer be offering security updates for it Unfortunately.

I completely agree that this is a great browser now, the first good release in over a decade. I should say "was" though, because today AOL made the announcement that they are discontinuing the browser for good. So even though people have been saying that Netscape Navigator was dead for years, today marks it as being official.

This will still work fine for the time being of course, but as soon as Mozilla releases the next update to Firefox it would be wise to switch in order to get the latest security updates. This is after all just a port of Firefox (which itself was a port of Netscape ironically).

RIP Netscape...

I keep repeating two things ad nauseam:

1. TRY before reviweing, as ol55li says.

I just don't understand comments like the new & very immature browser Flock is better... or FF users calling Netscape bloated-- that's like a pedophile criticizing a flasher.

2. This browser is ready for mission-critical production work 'better' than any other Moz variant.

Actually, IF it could use IE's Favorites system it'd be my only browser.

Have you even try this new version 9.0.0.5 when giving bad ratings?
This whole new browser than Netscape 8.
Netscape 9.0.0.5 base on Firefox 2.0.0.11, but Navigator is even better.
Try it, and give Your rating after that.

If I hadn't already moved on to Firefox 3 I might would have considered moving to Navigator. Navigator does have some improvements over vanilla Firefox but Firefox 3 (even thought it's a beta) has stolen Navigators thunder as far as I'm concerned. I'll give Navigator another try once FF3 is out and Netscape has upgraded to the new code.

A few months ago, more or less for the fun of it, I decided to try Navigator on my XP and Mac computers and I ended up being surprised and pleased -- it is definitely faster than Firefox on those two using the same extensions. Secondly, I haven't yet had the memory problems with it that I've had with Firefox.

I thought there would be no difference at all, but I was wrong. I don't know what the technical differences are, but my eyes aren't deceiving me. For my uses, I much prefer Navigator over Firefox and frequently use it when Opera isn't the best choice.

All these browsers are "in the making" and should be reviewed by people who actually test them, don't you think?
