Here's a screenshot of Netscape 8 using the Winscape theme (looks a lot like Firefox with this theme) - http://kidzilla.planetaclix.pt/ns8-winscape.jpg

I don't think you need a screenshot of the fusion theme (formerly Comet) , as it looks just like the Beta.

and just to be complete, here's a screenshot of Firefox running with the Winscape theme from NS8:

and the same Firefox with Fusion/Comet:

Comet/Fusion actually looks nice on firefox! :)

From the Netscape 8 Release Notes
Profile Folder

Netscape Browser stores your user data in one of the following locations:
Windows 2000, XP
Documents and Settings\<UserName>\Application Data\Netscape\NSB

Windows 98, ME
Windows\Application Data\Netscape\NSB


The profile location for Netscape8 Beta was the ...\Application Data\Netscape\NSAE folder...so, in other words, you are forced to start fresh with a new profile.

Alice, did you uninstall Netscape 8.0 Beta before installing Netscape 8.0?

Yes I did, but I chose NOT to remove the profile folder, when asked.

By the way, the stub installer didn't offer so save the downloaded setup files. I thought of that so, before the install finished I checked my %temp% folder which contained a Netscape Installer folder and an Install.log which included this URL (appears to be the full 13+ MB installer): http://ftp.netscape.com/pub/netscape8/e ... ll-8-0.exe

The Netscape Installer\56 folder (from my Temp folder) included the setup file, nsb-install-8-0.exe which I saved for backup.

so the Netscape 8.0 Beta was really designed for "testing"? interesting.
