Netscape Navigator is the first Internet browser I ever used to surf the World Wide Web, which, back in the late 1990’s, was still in its infancy. However, it has long been dominated by Internet Explorer developed by Microsoft and currently is no longer being supported by AOL. Fortunately, for the loyal fans of Netscape Navigator, the browser is still available for download.

The current and final version of Netscape Navigator is based on the Mozilla Firefox browser and many of the features indicate an integration between the two browsers. Navigator also made it easier for users to access news feeds, with a menu option that leads to the news portal of Netscape. The tab interface theme is also now carried over to the Mozilla Firefox browser. I also noticed that Netscape Navigator is supported across Linux, Windows and Mac OS X. I could also add toolbar icons that I preferred, a feature in the sidebar. Netscape also can now correct URL misspells, straight out of Google Chrome.

Overall, those who are users of Netscape Navigator can expect the best Netscape Navigator experience ever developed in this download.

Netscape is an open source web browser created by Marc Andreessen, and enhanced in this the efficiency while you surf on the Internet. The application includes new functions like the possibility of viewing multiple pages at the same time in just one screen. Netscape allows you to share different files at the same time, as well as pause and resume downloads. Also, it includes several improvements on the searching, security, stability and functioning.

The interface has changed, now you have more free space to view and concentrate on the webpages. Similarly, new tools and utilities are included to make the surfing easier like the ‘web address correction’ that automatically corrects you if you make any mistake writing the URL. Also, you have a container where you can save the websites for visiting in any other situation or to have a quicker access to your favorite ones.

Netscape is based in his core, Gecko, which helps you to display webpages and support Internet standards. Its compatibility with different services is excellent; one example is the integration of social networks. Besides, the program includes AOL Instant Messenger, for you to chat with people from all over the world. In Netscape you can even listen to the radio.

How to use this web browser

Getting this utility on your PC won’t take you too long. Once you are used to the setup process, there are several things you can do while using the Internet. For instance, this browser has a pop-up menu that will appear when you right-click on any word of a webpage, giving you the option to navigate searching for other uses of that word. Also, you can use tabs, something quite useful when you are visiting multibranching sites, and you should not close any of the pages because you will use them later.

On one side of the interface you will see a drop-down list with the sites you previously visited. Besides, the ‘Link Pad’ functionality also appears as a sidebar view on the left part of the screen. You do not longer need to bookmark links; you just have to right-click on it and choose the option ‘Save Link to Link Pad’. Later on, when you decide to visit that site again, you only have to click on it and a new window will open for it.
