I have the same machine spec, 2* 350 P2s and 256 meg of ram and
Netscape is the most buggy ap that I run this side of star office.
It wheezes , whines , displays that goddamn awful blurred out
application window and then refuses to die properly.
It is so bad that I had to write a script to look for Netscape processes
and kill them when they were misbehaving particularly badly.
I hardly ever used it on the PC but is seems to be a terrible piece of
code. I am surprised that Mc$oft didn't try to make the point in their
t has gotten to the stage where I seriously considered using HOTJAVA
(Lord protect me ) . What kind of features does MOSAIC have and is it
really worth switching over?
