i run linux, with netscape, and i like netscape... but it is NOT stable...

when i did run windows, i ran ie3 because it was faster and more stable then netscape (never had it crash on broken tables)

and 4.5 is a tad better, but still is pretty bad... it locks up frequently, and sometimes just disappears if i look at the wrong page...

however, i don't run windows, so this may be just be the result of a poor unix port, i really don't know...

regardless, i have to agree somewhat with CR that mozilla hasn't been quite what i expected..

nglayout is great, but xpfe seems like it will be a great stalling point, and i think that maybe a native fe would be faster and more stable. but i guess that is an option given ng's modular design..

but hopefully development will move a bit more quickly, MS already has a stable advanced version of ie5(6?) that will be released with w2k, i'd hate to see netscape fall behind by 2 releases...
