    I have both, and from my experience, Internet Explorer is MUCH faster then Netscape. Netscape takes too long to load, and sometimes, it won't load a page until THE WHOLE thing is loaded into memory first, and then it just THROWS it all on your screen at once (at least it does for me).

    But like I said, for me, I find IE to be faster. I have version 5.5 right now.

    when I use netscape the AR boards are all screwed up on my laptop. where the avatars and bios show up on ie is where I get the messages. and in the messages section is nothing. its a pain to read each post in a 2 inch width square.

    I use Internet Explorer 6, and like it fine, but there are other choices besides Nutscrape. If you don't trust Microsoft, then you could try Opera, which has some features which make it useful for viewing multiple web sites. Another popular browser is CrazyBrowser (hate that name), which is really just a new face built on the IE kernel, but has multi-page tabbing similar to Opera.

    If you like Netscape, then use Mozilla.

    Netscape is Mozilla + a ton of crap added.

    I personally use Opera, great browser AND the fastest there is.

    At work I use IE(windows), and at home I use Mozilla(Linux)! Mozilla is ten times faster but thats only because I use it on a linux box!

    Does Opera still lack support for Java and Javascript? If so, that would limit its usefulness for some sites, including some online shopping carts.

    Nope, you can download 2 versions... 1 with Java, 1 w/o.

    Opera is 100% compliant to the current HTML standards (as is Mozilla), but some sites look a little messed up because they are setup with non standard, IE exclusive junk.

    The BEST thing in Opera is the built in popup killer and mouse click-drag navigation (eg: you right click and hold it and jerk the mouse left and it's the equivalent to hitting the GO BACK button).
