    Hi,

    Well I'd like to download Netscape 8 because I see that it has a password manager type of thing where it remembers your login information for different websites and encrypts them. But however, on the license agreement I believe it is, I read that they will without permission collect "Anonymous" things. Since AOL which I believe owns Netscape is for say a "reliable" company, would you be concerned using Netscape 8 knowing they collect "Anonymous" information and such?

    I'd appreciate everyone's opinion because I really like Netscape 8... the features and interface.

    Sorry for posting, I should of read the agreement over again before I posted. I am so sorry :(

    You can delete this thread, I wanted to but I couldn't even though I went into "edit" and tried seeing where I could.

    But I installed Netscape 8 and its running great. Although, very high MEM USAGE in "Windows Task Manager" I noticed. Up to almost 60K. But, I opted out of the browser sending anonymous information.

    Hi Gracie,

    I wouldnt keep any information such as passwords, account numbers etc on my computer. This is the same as writing them down which is a Network Admins worst nightmare. Passwords should only be written down in one place, your head.

    Take Care :)

    I just use Firefox... and have lots of security softwares installed. I tried the others but I felt anxious using different browsers... for one some are very slow on my pc and I felt not protected. So I am using only Firefox... and as long as it's up to date I think this is secure than the others. :cool:
