Downloading Help
Most recent versions of Netscape are quite large and would take a long time to download, however the connection might not be perfect at all times. My personal recommendation is using a downloading manager for all your downloads especially those large files, like Go!Zilla for Windows 9x/NT, Monica for Macintosh, Caitoo for Linux.
