Netscape Browser Prototype

yes it is very bloated but you can still customize it anyway you like, remember its built off of Firefox 1.0 code so you can customize it the same way as you can Firefox

Actually, this prototype build is based off Firefox 0.93 code, but the final release will be based off 1.0.

I'm still on dial-up, so I guess I'll wait a bit before doing anything like downloading. It just takes too much time for anything larger than 5mb.

You're a moron. It doesn't install anything besides the browser. try downloading it before you complain.  :whistle:

You're the moron, moron! I wasn't complaining about anything. I was just asking how many other things get installed when installing this version of Netscape. Everyone knows whenever you install ANYTHING even closely owned by AOL, you're going to get something else installed. I have installed it on 3 systems now also. No, it doesn't install any Real Player or ICQ or AOL/Netscape IM stuff, but I don't like it having to act as a server to run those news feeds in the personal toolbar. Won't allow you to connect to the net if you don't allow it to act as server either.

the default skin is UGLY - that needs to be changed before final. and view it in mshtml is kinda pointless. if you really need it the you can run iexplore.

Looks ok, I still prefer FireFox over any other program. Netscape has never shown themself worthy to be my browser. They have to prove to me that they are better.

No it's not, and I really wish Softpedia would stop using these cheap shots to boost their views - the file info has been updated, but the file itself is the same old initial prototype Netscape 0.5.6 that can be found everywhere else.

That could be, but it doesn't beat Safari :p The prototype looks pretty crappy, maybe that's the reason they called it that way.

I was just wondering why you say that, cause at the code level, netscape, mozilla and firefox are mostly the same.
