I knew this day was coming. If you can believe it, I was still using Netscape Navigator 7.2 for most of my internet browsing & as my email client. Compared to IE (Microsoft Internet Explorer)
Navigator was much more stable, fault tolerant and had a cleaner & easier to use interface. Navigator didn't have all those unused toolbars at the top of the window that you couldn't get rid of.
Alas, more & more web sites had new features that wouldn't work. Netscape no longer supports Navigator, so it's time to change.
After downloading the Mozilla Firefox browser
and Thunderbird email client
, I installed them without a hitch. In fact they both automatically imported everything
All my bookmarks, saved passwords, history, email addys, accounts, folders & filters. Both programs even kinda look the same, and they allow you to get rid of toolbars that you don't use, to clean up your window.
As I type this, Firefox
is automatically spell checking, underlining suspicious words in red. Very cool!
