Read the full article if you wish, at http://www.nytimes.com/circuits/ but note this:
All the recent articles about browsers are missing the obvious choice: Netscape. Both Foxfire and Mozilla are built by the same people who first developed Netscape at the University of Illinois almost twenty years ago.
Netscape is free, available by download or CD at www.netscape.com and has MORE features han all the competing browsers:
- Increased security
- Junk mail filter
- Pop-up stoppers
- Search the web by clicking any word on a web site
- Tabbed browsing
- Save all tabbed pages as a group of bookmarks
and because the mail is integrated, you don't have to use a separate program like Outlook Express for e-mail.
So why all the talk about paying $30 for a browser with tabs? Beats me. I've got 86 percent of my clients happily using Netscape and nobody misses out on a single feature of IE.
