    Hi ;)
    Interesting. Although very satisfied with Opera, I'll probably try the final Netscape when launched, just to see what it has...
    Good thing to have several top-class browsers to choose from on the market. The customers benefit.
    Cheers

    Yes, the new Netscape is very interesting. It actually has both the Microsoft Trident engine and the Mozilla Gecko engine; you can switch on the fly or configure a particular website to always open with whichever one that you prefer. I played with the beta for a while and it was quite fun ... now if only they would approve the appearance giving it a different skin and get rid of the ugly greenish blue or blueish green ...

    Hi
    Just to make sure: both engines do ship inside Netscape, right? Or is Netscape using the IE engine already present on one's system?

    Asking, because I eradicated IExplorer and several related components from my system a long time ago using XPLite...

    Also, the IExplorer engine is not the main source of IExplorer security flaws, or is it? I mean, it's more in the nature of activex, security concepts and zones, and so on ?! Or does Netscape ship with security flaws related to the IEx engine it contains?

    Sorry to be so ignorant on this matter...
    Thanks

    Actually the default engine is the FireFox engine but you can switch at any time. I do not know if Netscape uses the IE engine that is already installed on your system or comes with its own; interesting question.
