Communicator For Slower Machines?

Thursday October 1st, 1998

George Giannukos writes in with a question that I had not considered, and something that may be possible with the new layout engine being developed. George writes, "I say if Netscape can't integrate the damn browser into the OS, then Netscape needs to give more CHOICE!

First off, I have a 100 MHz computer and Communicator4 and IE4 are slow. I would NEVER install IE on it. IE makes the whole computer slower, so what's the point if it opens 3 seconds faster if it slows the whole computer?

Anyhow, I would like to see Netscape release a browser for older computers. Do ya'll think this is a market that Netscape should consider?"

Ya, opera is an option..

but i want to see Netscape make their own version.

I am gotten tired of Netscape complaining that Microsoft is using anti-competitive practices. Ya, we all know Microsoft is dirty, but why don't you take a look at your stock? Or look at your browser share? If the stock performs bad, then good programers will go some whare else because stock options are better....

Netscape needs to grow up and make GREAT products that have NO weakness!!

I think if Netscape made a browser for old comp., they could brag that they want to give users more choice. I also think Netscape should talk about how you can't uninstall IE, once you install it on your computer!! I can't believe Microsoft did this. Microsoft programers must have been high or somtin when they programed IE.

that's my 2 cents, plus opera costs money, so...
