Now you know, as I've said, that if I could afford newer Macs, I would buy one with little or no hesitation whatsoever.
While I don't have the funds available for new computers, I'll be sticking with my G3's for the forseeable future.
Let's not turn this thread into another Mac related discussion, we have plenty of other threads for that.
Thing is, most internet browsers are free products. There is very little reason (if any) to use browsers that are so old.
The only reason I'd download and older versions of Netscape these days, would perhaps be for nostalgic reasons,
to look back on the days when Netscape was still the most popular web browser, with the highest market share.
And even then, they'd be installed insde virtual machines within Virtual PC, rather than installed natively.
And as much as I used to be a a big fan of Netscape, back when I ran my Club Netscape website, and offered up
the DJGM-i Distros of Netscape 7.x, you know these days I'm not keen on the current generation of Netscape
branded browser offerings. If AOL ever see sense (unlikely I know) and bring back the Netscape branded
internet suites (which would most likely be based upon SeaMonkey) I would more than likely, relaunch
the Club Netscape website, and to some extent, resume production of my custom Netscape distros.
Meanwhile, as for downloading/installing versions of Netscape from the 4.x and 3.x series and earlier, maybe it'd
be a good idea for us here at SillyDog701, to point certain issues out in the form of a general disclaimer, just as
we did back when Netscape 6 was full of bugs. As this section of these forums, is geared towards being one
of the few remaining places to turn to with regards to old Netscape, we need to remind users, that they
are now completely obsolete, no longer supported by Netscape, and should ideally not be used
and/or relied upon as a primary tool for everyday general internet browsing.
