For me, Netscape lost all relevance after version 7 when they fired all of their developers and closed up shop (or shall I say AOL). Granted, anyone has the right to be in business, but their comeback was less than stellar. Version 8 was outsourced to some Canadian company, was never Mac-compatible, and lacked the features that made Netscape Netscape: integrated mail/address book, HTML composer, IRC, etc. So Version 9 is cross platform. At this point, it's all about ad revenue, getting you to use Netscape Search. The old Netscape's legacy (and most of their employees) lives on in Seamonkey and Firefox/Thunderbird. The Mac browser space is already crowded with excellent choices. If NS9 came back as a true internet suite, that might be something exciting. But another browser? Who cares...

You can still run this on an Intel Mac in Mountain Lion. However, it's pretty old and a lot of websites don't work or look skewed (YouTube, Apple.com). I was trying to get nostalgia, but the interface is pretty Mac OS X. I think I'll find a way to run OS 9 under SheepSaver or get an old Mac to run.

I must say that I am most chagrined that this will be the last build of Netscape- and that I just decided to give it a try now. I can not believe how much better it is on my system than Firefox. It does not make sense, but it is true! On Firefox- I was getting significant pauses on loading pages that have been somehow fixed by using Netscape 9. At first, I thought it was because I had different add-ons in Firefox than what I was using in Netscape. Well, I found out that Netscape does use the same plug-in that are available in Firefox. Netscape was quite easy to set-up like Firefox.. In fact, they really are indistinguishable in look. I also tried the Firefox 3 beta. To be honest, I still had the same performance issues. And, both Firefox browsers had an annoying leak where java script would bleed to other applications after switching from Firefox. Netscape does not have this difficulty, either. Well, AOL does seem to have gotten this browser right, as well as their excellent AOL radio client. I am sorry to see Netscape go. However, it and Safari will be my main browsers until Firefox eclipses it in performance and features. In my opinion, it does not even come close to equally the stellar performance of Netscape 9. May she rest in peace!

Its been updated to allow users to transfer data to new browsers with out being at risk from Firefoxs security Issues that were fixed in firefox 2.0.12 update. Thats what release notes are for so you can look up a the reasons for updates via the link. Yes this app is just a way to publicly test the beta versions of the gecko engines used in firefoxes NIghtly builds as most users won't go near them but put another app name on it and they will download the linked app.

If it's dead stop giving us new releases! It only confuses the issue. NN was, and still is a great browser, but geez, let it retire properly and pass the torch.

I thought Netscape Navigator was dead? I read articles on Arstechnica, Slashdot, Engadget and Wired all saying that the browser was being put out to pasture with no future updates? Is this the final release for Mac or something?

Netscape 4 was the best browser in its day, but at this point I'm surprised they're still bothering to release new versions. I think it's time to stop beating this dead horse. Put a fork in it and let it die already; nobody has used this browser for years.

Oh well, adios... I liked Navigator (9.0.0.5) much better than Firefox, which I do not like even a little bit. I really like Camino (1.5.4) best of all the so-called Mozilla browsers. "To each, his own."

Well, personally I think this was just another FireFox clone, since all those Gecko based browsers seem kind of similar to me...and I still prefer Safari on the Mac anyway...! But even though this was among the better ones, it seems it's officially dead now, according to the news...?!? http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/technology/7163547.stm That revival didn't really last long now, dit it...?!

Netscape can be a copy of Firefox and maybe it hasn't all its addons but it is much faster than Firefox and I'm sticking to it. Hope that Mozilla keeps updating Netscape.
