Information for those using the Netscape browser.

End of the Line Approaching for Netscape Browser

As webguy has mentioned in other posts, FiberglassRV works very well with Mozilla Firefox and we recommend its use, download here: Mozilla Firefox

Netscape was originally a Mozilla "Product", so Firefox is the latest (It's been around for years tho) version by the originators.

I use it exclusively.

Interesting article. I can't remember when I first got on the net, probably right after IE was released. I remember our dial up was 7.99 a month. I wish DSL was that cheap!

I use Firefox too, it works great for me.

I switched to firefox when IE was having security problems (which I guess they now have fixed). It works... I'm fine with it.

I have Mozzilla Firefox on all three of my computers, .... 1 Windows XP Desktop, .... 1 Apple MacBook Notebook, ..... and a Linux based Asus Notebook.

It became my browser of choice some time ago. It has all of the features of IE plus more, and it's very stable

As you can tell, I'm very pleased with it, and I believe anyone switching to Firefox will be very pleased, .... especially since it's a free download.

Back 'in the day' my dept supported about 300 (legal) copies of Netscape Navigator, WordPerfect and Multiplan and even though they were superior products - when Bill Gates began to provide IE, MS Word and MS Excel for FREE ... well within 6 months we had business license for more than 600 copies of the MS junk.

The MS stuff has gotten better over the years, and it is easy for someone who knows one to learn another - but it sure is not free anymore!

Bottom line ... he must have done something right$$$$$

Probably a bit more. Closer to 20 - 25 years ago, I think. I was running MS Multiplan on an Commador 64 in the days before browsers and it was out performing in some ways Lotus 123 on a 8086 PC. Since you're talking long time ago, or not so long ago depending on your age. Before the browsers there was Bulletin Boards, Usenet, and Telnet. And Prodigy, Compuserve, America On Line dial up services using 1200 baud modems.

OK OK, enough. I'm showing my age.

Well at least you didn't go back to the ARPANET (predecessor to the Internet or Internet beginning depending upon what expert is talking). I became involved shortly after the original four universities were online and had two teletype compatable terminals. The fast one was 150 baud and only Stanford would support that high speed traffic.
Anyway, pardon the senior moment ...

Ya! let's forget ARPANET, and using a teletype for computer terminal and Dartmouth Basic and GE Mark II and Mark III.
That must have been a souped up teletype. The ones I used were at 110 Baud.
