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?"

waste of time? only $800 to upgrade? you don't know just how hard it is to move all your files and deal with MS' installation problems just to get a free browser. Netscape 4 works on Win 3.1 so where's the project to port Mozilla to it? I should add that there are projects to port to DOS as well as performance projects and I assume Baby Mozilla projects.
