    I realize that some sites will only take IE, but I seem to recall that some also will work with NS, but not FF.

    Does NS accept/use Active X which is what I understand as the problem with some sites?

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    I'm not sure, but I know Opera can be easily switched to look and act like Opera, Firefox, or IE.

    Netscape can be configured to use ActiveX. It automatically uses ActiveX and switches to the IE engine on sites that are on its trusted category and require IE engine (and ActiveX), such as www.microsoft.com

    Netscape uses Firefox as its default engine, however. If you have problems viewing any website, switch to the IE engine, and then you can configure the Site Controls to use ActiveX.
