Comparing Firefox and Netscape
Hey, Netscape 8.0 is coming out! How is it going to compare to Firefox? Is it too late for a revival of Netscape?
Netscape 8.0 is built on top of Firefox, with some Internet Explorer additions. So it's pretty similar and Web pages will display the same in both -- at least when Netscape is in "Gecko compatibility mode."
Whether Netscape succeeds or not will depend on AOL's portal strategy more than on the qualities of the browser. Use Netscape 8.0 if you want the full Netscape-branded experience. Don't use it if you just want to surf the Web.
