You know, I've found it a lot stabler than Netscape 3/4 on Solaris...
Eats up only slightly less memory than 4 does too. It's not as responsive
Netscape, but it hangs on to a load of Windowisms - Bringing a newly
downloaded webpage to the focus, middle mouse button doesn't open a new
window, cut and paste doesn't work the unix way etc. etc.
I've gone back to using multiple versions of Netscape 3. *sigh*
"We've uniformly rejected all letters and declined all discussion upon the
question of when the present century ends, as it is one of the most absurd that
can engage the public attention, and we are astonished to find it has been the
subject of so much dispute, since it appears plain. The present century will
not terminate till January 1, 1801, unless it can be made out that 99 are 100.
It is a silly, childish discussion, and only exposes the want of brains of
those who maintain a contrary opinion to that we have stated"
