Thier user agreement is vague.
I already tried Mozilla, Firefox, Avant, MyIE2 and IE.
Netscape is basically a more commercialised version of Mozilla, the Netscape browser is actually based off the Mozilla source code. You're better off just sticking with Mozilla or FireFox
By commercialized, do you mean it has advertizements?
Mozilla and Firefox have less options that I want on them than Internet Explorer.
Thank you for replying.
What options are you talking about?
Having a Full screen button, copy button, paste button, home button and print button on the toolbar.
Being able to increase text size easily.
Being able to get the toolbers in a color other than grey or biege.
I would like to be able to choose wether to open something in a new tab or new window.
When I click Full screen, I would like it to stay that way.
I geuss I'm looking for convenience without a big loss on security.
Thank you for replying.
F11 will open fullscreen mode.
Right clicking on a link gives you the option to open in a new window or tab.
In Firefox, right click a toolbar and hit customize, you can drag the buttons you want onto the toolbar.
For the toolbar color, you can always get different themes for Firefox or Mozilla, Tools > Themes in Firefox. View > Apply theme > Get New Themes in Mozilla.
To change the text size, hold CTRL down and scroll the mouse wheel up or down to change the text size, or CTRL and + to increase, CTRL and - to decrease.
Don't use Netscape. Netscape has pretty much been killed off by AOL/TimeWarner. Stick with Mozilla and/or Firefox. It really is the way to go.
All these are for Mozilla and Firefox...
question #2: Just click "view" on the top-most tool bar and increase the text size as you wish.
question #3:You can not customize the tool bars as to using a custom background as you can with IE using the Tweak UI tool. You can "skin" Mozilla and Firefox in the way that you "skin" Windows XP by using "Themes" which you can download and install (they can actually be installed from where you download them from, "on the fly").

Firefox Themes: http://update.mozilla.org/themes/?application=firefox
question #5: If you open Mozilla or Firefox and maximize/fullscreen the window, it will open again fullscreen/maximized. Plus you can always right click on the Browser's icon and open it's "properties" and set it to run "maximized". If that is the way you wish to have it.
question #6: Mozilla and Firefox are far more secure than IE can ever be. Plus the built in "pop-up" blocker and all the extension you want to add to the browser to customize it to your liking, ie... Ad Blocker, Tab Browser Extensions, etc.

I meant how do you make the text in the toolbars
larger. It is too small. It said font pixel size. I tried to make it larger and it
Thank you all very much.
No Netscape 7.1 does not have adware on it. I was just using Netcape a few minutes ago.
Thank you. Do you know hw to make the text in the toolbar bigger?
The text in the tool bar if I remember correctly is governed by the Operating System. Change the font size globally and you change it on the tool bars.
Now again, I do believe this is the way it works.
I believe gonaads is right.
I agree with you though, the text is rather small and not very smooth, goodlooking at all.
Hey Veronica, could ya post a screen shot of yer browser(s)? The screen shot can just be of the Tool Bar area... sozz we can see how it looks.
I don't know how to make a screenshot.
I got rid of Netscape. I tried to open a file while in Firefox and Netscape opened up and showed the file. IMO Netscape installed itself as my default browser for opening that type of file.
I'm back to Firefox.
Does it mess up your PC to install 5 extra browsers and uninstall 3?
Thank you for your replies.
to take a screen shot:
hit the print scr key on the keyboard (usually to the right of the "F" keys). Then open up MS Paint and paste the pic in. Alternatively, ctrl + print scr will only copy the active window.
But make sure to save it as something other then a BMP
Edit: I figured it out. \/
OK, I figured it out. Its not a BMP. I could not
figure how to cut off the bottom part. This is on my Firefox browser. The text on
it is big enough. On Mozilla and Netscape it is too small. I'm going to re-do
Firefox further down. It didn't come out right.
Here is Mozilla.
Here is Firefox. Edit: I don't know why this pic came out smaller than it is on my hard disc.
