    Hello everyone,

    I just tried Netscape 8, and I must say its great. Its two engines (Firefox and IE) feature is what I like most, and its quite secure too. I did notice some small glitches though (sometimes CPU usage suddenly shoots up to 100%). Anyone know about this?

    Please post your opinions about this browser. :)

    I trialled it, but looked like a major resource hog and I experienced CPU Usage Spikes too often.
    Sticking with Firefox!

    Although I do not use this browser frequently .... I did install the 8.0.2 version recently. This version seems to perform reasonably well for me .... as compared to the original release of Netscape 8.0 which was loaded with problems and bugs.

    HR :)

    I am trying Opera at the momenrt and find it spikes when running for a while but when I lower it to the taskbar the memory resource drops incredibly!
    I don't think I should have to keep minimising a browser to cope with resources o_O

    I was going to install Netscape to see if it was more efficient with memory until I searched and found this post :( does this apply to v8.3.3.0 also?
