    IE 6 vs. Netscape 7

    Which do you prefer, IE 6 or Netscape 7 (or the Mozzy equivalent), as your Web browser?

    I'll give a slight edge to IE 6.

    Well, Mozilla tends to render the pages the way they're supposed to look. And it has more support for standards than Internet Explorer...

    I also like Netscape because you aren't forced to use it on just one OS.

    Mozilla compiled from source (With chatzilla, composer, mail removed, although the mail client is pretty good, use it on my windows box)

    For some reason, there are some sites that won't load with Internet Explorer. It will just hang there. But it will load just fine in Mozilla.
    Same way, for some reason, I can't access Openoffice.org from Mozilla under linux on this box, but I can any oher site. However, it loads fine from windows and also from my laptop on linux and mozilla.

    I am using Netscape 6.2 on Linux. I doubt that I'll upgrade to 7, since 6.2 does everything that I need quite well. I use the e-mail client and I use Composer too, which I really, really like.

    At work, I use both Netscape and IE 5.5, the latter because some of our intranet requires it. I would not ever use I.E. if I had a choice. Or any Microsoft product, for that matter.

    Dude I feel your pain. I think, I figured a hack to allow for Mozilla based engines to work for my work web GUI. The other web-gui (which will be dead in 2 weeks --- YAYYY!!!!) is locked into Netscape4.xx and win32 ONLY. Cant do shit without win32 ports of NS4.xx. It needless to say licks camel arse --- but its better than IE.
