 Internet Netscape Browser Beta - using FireFox and IE rendering engines
It looks like Netscape isn't ready to leave the Browser Wars. The newest beta of Netscape offers a person the ability to use the built in Mozilla engine which is a sister to FireFox's, or use the Internet Explorer engine to display activex content at Microsoft and other content rich sites. I've always been a big fan of Netscape Navigator and Netscape Communicator because they offer features that IE never gave us. I like the ability to use the Netscape Composer to build webpages. Many people also like the built in Email engine. I tried out the beta version and I had trouble with the default search page popping in unexpectedly at the most aggravating times. I'm going to wait until they get the bugs out before I try it again. If they continue to improve, I might switch over to Netscape permanently.
Website - Freeware
Quote from the website - Netscape Browser provides more security options, streamlines more standard browsing tasks and arms internet users with more timesaving solutions to their browsing needs than any other browser.
