Web browser based on Firefox that delivers a familiar user interface, improved newsfeed support, extensive security center, one-click searching from the address bar, tabbed browsing and more
Netscape Navigator is no longer a valid web browser as its development stopped back in 2007 and all support was discontinued at the beginning of 2008.
Netscape Navigator is a web browser built on the Mozilla platform. So, if you're on the hunt for new ways to navigate on the Internet, why not try something inspired by the best in the business?
Netscape Navigator 9, which found the passage its original name is always based on Firefox but is still undergoing some changes. The browser is now available for Mac OS X and Linux, and offers a new interface more sober.
Smooth and fast installation process
The installation process takes little time to complete, and there are no extraordinary features to it, so, you can safely initiate the Navigator afterward.
Introducing the GUI
The user interface looks extremely familiar - same search bar on the upper right corner, same add-ons, same Options interface... maybe Netscape has borrowed one too many elements from Firefox, but at least it has its well-known colors (which take after ESET Nod32 a little).
Key features to experiment with
Features found in Netscape Navigator include an improved newsfeed support and methods of discussion, submission, the possibility to vote web pages, multi profile support, extensive security center, one-click searching from the address bar, Click-to-Seach, tabbed browsing, and others.
The default search engine is AOL's, but you can easily change that. Time it takes Nescape Navigator to load a page is fast, but not faster than in the case of its 'mentor,' and it gets stuck or crashes, in some rare occasions. In addition, memory resources are significantly used, even when there's only a single web page opened, with text content.
Unfortunately, support for Netscape browsers was discontinued a while back, so the Navigator recommends you use Flock or Firefox.
Nevertheless, Netscape Navigator proves to be a pretty good alternative to other weaker web browsers, and it definitely deserves a fair trial. It's free, after all.
