I'm having a lot of problems with Netscape 6.0.  Here's the most 
recent.  I received your post in the NS email program, and when I 
clicked on the Opera URL above, the  program closed down.  Netscape 4.7 
would have opened the browser and taken me right there.

While I think that 6.0 does a better job of displaying web pages than 
4.7, it's missing features that 4.7 has.  For example, in the email 
program of 6.0 if you're reading a message, you can't go to the next 
unread message without clicking out of the message you're reading and 
then double clicking on the next new message.    There's no "Next" 
button like there is in 4.7.

With 6.0 you can't right click a web page and email it to someone like 
you can in either 4.7 or Windows.

Netscape 6.0 is funny.  It seems like a Beta version.  Is it?  It really 
does not seem like it's ready for release.

Thanks for the message.  I'll check Opera out.
