I hate to say it but after Netscape 4.+ everything went downhill. I was an early adopter of v6 but it was doggedly slow. After the Time Warner fallout the browser was but a shadow of its former self. I think that Firefox killed off the last of the die hards.

Sad but true, Netscape was an icon of the 1990s Internet. I remember using it on the old SPARC / Solaris workstations when I first went to college and discovered the World Wide Web.
