I've gone right off NC4, because it is quite unstable on my Win98 box, and most importantly it's caching sucks. That "Work Offline" thing doesn't work!!

I pay for Net access per hour, and if I go to a very big page, like programming documentation, I don't want to sit there reading it while the meter is ticking.

IE5 works offline very well, the only pages I can't see are those generated by a POST request, which is fair enough. But with Netscape, any page that has any type of server-side dynamic logic is chucked out.

I know that maybe IE isn't totally spec-compliant in this respect (is it compliant with any??) but this is a useful feature to have.

Mozilla developers, please consider this.
