0.9.6 installed fine. Rebuilt dtp: crashed on launch (error 2)! Changed extensions set to Mac OS All, increased the already high memory allotment to 35OOOK: crashed again!
Switched to Communicator 4.x, iCab, then IE, then Netscape 6, all of which now crashed with same error (2), except IE. IE, however was beginning to display cosmetic problems (partial display of windows etc), neither could it find helper applications. I suspect a conflict with Internet Configuration among other oddities, since I eliminated connectivity as something which links different browsers... Needless to say I trashed the damn thang.
I experienced this on an iMac DV 400 mHz/320 MB running OS 9.2 in a pristine state! Ergo my very subjective ratings. My favourite browser?-
