'Back in the day', I used Netscape... as did most everyone before IE clobbered it.
I dropped Netscape sometime after Navigator 4.08 came out. I liked 4.08, it was the last version of the standalone Netscape browser to come out for years to come, no bloat. One can argue that the Mozilla project's various standalone browser spinoffs, Camino, Firefox, etc., are now carrying on the legacy of Navigator 4.08, finally.
Then IE 4.0, I think that was the version, took me away with its rendering speed and fast 'pageback'. IE was better than Netscape, for me and my needs, than was Netscape Nevergetter at that point in time.
And here we are some years later, and I can't stand Mozilla for even a second. Camino was my default browser for awhile, then came Safari which suits me perfectly. I won't even think about OmniWeb, much less Opera or iCab. I think the last time I gave Netscape a shot was version 6.0 which as we all know was perfectly horrible.
But these reviews have got my curiosity going and I just might try Netscape 7.2. Might... heh heh.
