I must admit, the Netscape 6 browser looks very nice, but looks is as far as it goes. Functionality is on the negative side. Since installing NS6 I have been consistently getting smaller fonts then usual, hence some pages display incorrectly ... funny because previous versions of Netscape did not have this problem ... makes you think that Netscape released the Portable Computing Device version as a PC version. I have used Netscape since version 1.0 ... I\'m really dissapointed with this one ... If you are going to release a product at least make sure the pages display the same was as they did in your previous version. Oh one more thing, the Javascript rollovers are really iffy ... seems like NS is having problems displaying that too, besides the black image boxes that I get on some pages ... well ... until that's fixed ... Netscape is one browser I wont be using...
