I decided to give the latest milestone a try to see where Netscape is headed. I sure hope this isn't it.
Delays in loading pages are so long that I thought my computer had crashed! Pages with complex backgrounds (including those on tables) redraw these backgrounds pixel by pixel when a new URL is loaded. I thought the problem was that I had installed Mozilla without the Mail / News and Chatzilla components, so I tried a new install with everything. Same problem.
I was using a fresh profile with the latest version of the classic Mac OS, 9.2.1, and I even created a second test profile to see if the first one was just corrupt. Nope -- apparently there's something wrong here.
Netscape 6.1 is a fine product. Except for the occasional site that can't seem to decide whether I have Flash installed or not (I always do), it's a pleasure to use. I hope that future versions will not destroy that pleasure.
