FAQ:
What is CCK?
CCK stands for Client Customization Kit, which is available from Netscape for orginations to create and distribute unique, customized versions of Netscape browser, including changes to the familiar browser component, Netscape Navigator.

Are those distribution legal?
Yes, they are under Netscape Client Customization Kit License Agreement and Netscape Browser Distribution Program License Agreement.

What are the benefits of obtaining those distribution to the original Netscape distribution?
They are compact, smaller downloading sizes, download-once (not installer), faster installing.

What are those distribution designed for?
For people who don't want to install Mail and Newsgroup features (such as people only use web-based mail accounts or public internet access terminals), Navigator stand-alone is the best choice.
For public internet access terminals.
For people want the reduce the downloading time, and do not want to install full load of programmes.
For people who already have RealPlayer installed in their system.

What features has been disabled in those CCKed version?
None, no features has been disabled, no functions has been locked, no change of Netscape logo, no modification to default bookmarks. Please note that some components mentioned above are not included in the package.
In fact, you will have an extra entry in the Help menu, which will point you to Netscape Browser Archive Forum for asking questions.

What if I want to use Sun Java™2 Plug-in?
No problem. You can go to Sun's Java website and download the plug-in. Then your Windows and Netscape 6.x will have the latest Java™ 2 Standard Edition Runtime Environment. This method will ensure you having latest Java™2 Runtime Environment for your Windows, Netscape 6.x and 4.78 (and above), and MSIE.
OR you can download the complete package of Netscape 6.x.

What if I need to use multimedia features such as RealPlayer, Winamp, or Net2Phone?
Easy, there are many ways to use those multimedia features.
(1) if you already have them, just don't uninstall them and Netscape will automatically use their plug-ins (assume your previous installation is functioning)
(2) if you have them installed from previously Netscape, just don't un-install them, the Netscape Streamline will use them.
(3) if you don't have them in your computer, you can download them individually from their website. This way, you will more likely to get the most recent version of RealPlayer, Winamp or Net2Phone. (recommended)
(4) or you can download the all-in-one package of the Netscape 6.2.x.

Will this be faster than the Netscape's distribution?
Yes and no. No change to the browser engine at all (as mentioned previously), however there will have less applications associated to Netscape and file sizes are smaller, which might lead speed improments. The streamline Netscapes will definitely speeder and easier to install, and much easier to transfer to other computers or for friends.

AOL's trusted access issue?
There were reports over the newsgroups (Titled: What Bologna... NS6 gives AOL trusted access via IE posted by BJA on Monday 11th March 2002). It states:
After installing NS 6.2.1, I find that have 5 new shortcuts to http://free.aol.com:
One in IE's Favorites
One in IE's Favorites/Links
One on the desktop
One on in the root Start menu
One in Start Menu - Programs -> Netscape 6.2

Those unwanted shortcuts will not be added by Netscape 6.2.x Streamline downloaded from this website.
I have verified that no such anomaly exist in Streamline versions, because AOD is not included.

Known issues?
Well, all know issues with complete package of Netscape 6.1 and 6.2.x (with Navigator etc components) should still in the Streamline version. There are reports said some problems appearing in complete package (all-in-one) does not appear in our Streamline version.
(Netscape 6.1 Streamline ONLY): There was a known problem with the Streamline version of Netscape 6.1 with Mail: you cannot receive Netscape Webmail through your Netscape Mail. Reason: this feature requires Instand Messenger (AIM) installed, however, AIM is not included in the package. This problem is solved in Netscape 6.2 Streamline and later versions.

How can I help you?
I would be very appreciated if anyone can provide me some server space (30MB+). If you can do so, please contact me via feedback form, and leave your e-mail address.
If you like those streamline Netscapes, please tell your friends about Silly Dog 701's Netscape Browser Archive at http://sillydog.org/narchive/ .

Who is allowed to use this software?
Basically everyone is allowed, and this software is free to all. HOWEVER, NETSCAPE 6.2.3 END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT does not allow following people to use this product. (Excerpt from NETSCAPE 6.2.3 END-USER LICENSE AGREEMENT)
11. EXPORT / IMPORT. Licensee agrees to comply with all export and import laws and restrictions and regulations of the United States and foreign countries, and not to export, re-export or import the Product or any direct product thereof in violation of any such restrictions, laws or regulations, or without all necessary authorizations. Neither the Product nor the underlying information or technology may be downloaded or otherwise exported or re- exported (i) to Cuba, Iran, Iraq, Libya, North Korea, Sudan, Syria, the Taliban-controlled areas of Afghanistan, or any other country subject to U.S. trade sanctions applicable to the Product, to individuals or entities controlled by such countries, or to nationals or residents of such countries other than nationals who are lawfully admitted permanent residents of countries not subject to such sanctions; or (ii) to any named party or individual on the U.S. Department of Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control list of Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons, and/or the U.S. Department of Commerce, Bureau of Export Administration Denied Persons List or Entity List. By downloading or using the Product, Licensee agrees to the foregoing and represents and warrants that it complies with these conditions.

Any other issues I shall worry about?
No, if you really want to know more details about this distribution. Here it goes.
As required by the CCK license, I need to insert an identifier string to the browser identifier, this string is not used for tracing at all. There is a text string "SillyDog" in your browser's identifier (HTTP_USER_AGENT string). Again, this is a CCK build, however unlike other distribution, there is no branding nor locking of any functions/settings at all.

Should I use Netscape 6.2.3?
Developers should upgrade to Netscape 6.2.3 as soon as possible, and encourage their clients to do the same. A flaw that could potentially allow a malicious web site to read files stored on a user's computer has been discovered in Netscape 6.1 through 6.2.2 versions of the Netscape browser. There are no known instances of this flaw being exploited. Netscape encourages those using versions 6.1 through 6.2.2 to upgrade to the recently released Netscape 6.2.3 browser, which is not subject to this potential flaw.
