You can check "whois" right from the drop down menu, delete your internet tracks and personal forms info, save entire websites with spiderzilla, and block practically anything you want to configure.
The themes are great, the css feeds, and built-in blogging tools.
Don't mean to ramble on, but open source is the way to go for me. All you have to do is invest some time on the mozilla.org web site and set up your browser any way that suits your browsing style.
Did I mention that I'm impressed by Mozilla! Not to mention the calendar and outlook replacement "Thunderbird".

Fire Fox is defaulted to, as is IExplorer, by 8.x if the need arises...
You will see a lot of similarity in Fire Fox to Netscape...as both grew up together...
There is no internalized mail function in NETSCAEP 8.x, but if 7.x is loaded, it defaults to the internal mail function of 7.x, so you have not lost anything in the change over.
All NETSCAPE downloads/issues are to be found here: http://sillydog.org/

Don't forget, nobody knows how Windows works better than MS, and that goes for the applications that run on it as well.

Opera created tabbed browsing,offers fast integrated downloading,allows drag and drop everywhere and positioning of various toolbars to top, right, bottom, or left. Opera has a one-click log-in button and can be skinned a thousand different ways. Automatic pop-up blocker, one click switch between author and user display modes, fit-to-width button(no more horizontal scroll bar), complete control over cookies, and site preferences which allow peculiar settings for cookies, java, and more specifically for a certain page, and a content blocker that can stop almost anything, including the annoying smilies to my left as I type here. Opera's control interface is straightforward and intuitive. I downed Opera and had it set up and was cruising in about 20 min. Opera has built-in voice and mouse gesture support that are easily turned on and off. Opera is fully standards compliant. Once in a while I'll go out on FF but after just a few pages start to miss the ease with which Opera does the things automatically that FF needs several clicks to do. In my opinion, Opera is a better choice for those who have only used IE in the past. Try Opera for 3 days-you'll never go back.

People criticise Microsoft for creating it's own proprietary HTML standards, but the fact is those standards are now so well established and IE still by far the market leader that website-builders always use IE as the primary testing platform. I say it's no good bucking against what works best just to bash Microsoft -- in reality you're bashing yourself.

I still prefer NETSCAPE...and when they get the mail thing sorted out, it will be still the best... No worries about the baddies attacking it like OUTLOOK...
