Netscape users? I've noticed that this (and other websites) load a lot more slowly with Netscape. What's going on? Is it an html thing?
No, its an issue with Netscape code...Cima Coppi

Netscape 6.0 is very slow now (thank AOL for that) no matter where you go. Even with sites "designed" for Netscape 6.0, pages are loaded much slower than IE. I used to use Netscape exclusively, but version 6.0 absolutely sucks. I've switched to IE 6.0, and have been much happier.

Yep, ditched Netscape 6.0 and went back to 4.7JS

IE has won the battle folks. Time to ditch Netscrape...and to think we used to really look forward to each update of NS back in 94-5. Beat the heck out of every other browser back then.

My Netscape 4.78 does a double refresh when I try posting and it fails (unicode characters).

Netscape 6.x is up to 6.1 so you might want to give that a try. I can't believe AOL released a beta version of Mozilla. Even Mozilla folks were screaming it wasn't ready. It does render pages w/ lots of tables a lot faster than Netscape 4.x...

...looking for people to ride with during the day? If so, fire over an email to me. I live in the Village (NYC) and, as you know, am unemployed at present (days free, for the most part). I know Brooklyn and its environs very well (lived there most of my life), and would be down to ride there (or virtually anyplace else).

If you feel like some company, email me at

Be well, and careful out there!
