Netscape just bothered me. It took a good 10 seconds simply to start up, and once it did start up, it was slow as hell. IE was a much better alternative, even though it cheated and loaded up most of its required files at startup. IE browses a hell of a lot faster than Netscape, and doesn't FREEZE upon loading a new page.
The interesting thing is that the Netscape programmers really screwed up a basically good thing. Mozilla and Firebird are both built off of the Gecko core, the same as Netscape, and are FAR superior browsers. Firebird loads quicker than IE, and browses about twice as fast. The Netscape engineers just sucked.
I hate Netscape even more, as most people use it to say that IE is the best browser around, as Netscape is the most famous alternative browser, and since it sucks so bad, nobody wants to use it. If you aren't aware that there are better alternatives, then you will stick to using IE, which is a crime against humanity.
