FWIW Mozilla runs great on my 256Mb 550Mhz P3; it's sharing that ram with a
pile of stuff including a hungry VMware. I use for 99pc of my browsing now.
M18 is last month's code. Grab a nightly instead.
Netscape 6 is based on last month's code, and has a lot of extra stuff added.
I suspect most of the members of this list wouldn't be that interested in the
extra stuff, which is heavy on memory. Grab a nightly. Perhaps I should
arrange to mirror them.
The biggest advantage of Mozilla is that (IMHO) it's as good as N4.7x, and has
__potential__ again. You can build upon this platform once more. By 4.7x, the
NS codebase was so bogged down that it had nowhere to go. Mozilla will only
get better now.
HTTPS: Click on Debug menu, click "Install PSM", follow the instructions.
It'll add the HTTPS component.
Java: the nightlies don't ship with the JVM. When you encounter a page with
Java, you'll be prompted to add the component.
Both the above are pre-included in Netscape 6.
