Netscape 9.0

Fast and Steady

The first thing I noticed when I started to use Netscape 9.0 is that it is very fast. It is also fast when it is started up. That is why it got a place in my computer, but it has become a must in regard to accessing Google websites as described below. Furthermore it almost never crashes.

Netscape 9.0 is Different from Firefox 2.0

Netscape 9.0 is based on Firefox 2.0, but it is certainly different for some unknown reason. It certainly allows more detailed settings than Firefox 2.0, but it is not just that.

Netscape 9.0 is Useful When Accessing Google U.S. and Google Japan at the Same Time

I use Netscape 9.0 with Google Toolbar installed because I need to access Google Japan and Google U.S. at the same time. Netscape 9.0's own search box is set to access Google U.S. because I use the U.S. English version of Netscape 9.0. So I set my Google Toolbar search box with Google Japan. Netscape 9.0 enlarges its own search box as big as possible, and it is very covenient for me. That way I can enter a very long search word string, which I often do, like "The woods are lovely, dark and deep. But I have promises to keep" to find out who ever said it.

Netscape 9.0 is Useful When Netscape 7.0 fails

Regrettably there are Netscape 7.0-unfriendly websites, and they are increasing in number. So, I use Netscape 9.0 when Netscape 7.0 fails.

Netscape 9.0's Unwanted Features: "Show in Sidebar" and "Bookmarks Toolbar Folder"

The only problem with it is that it has something unnecessary like "Show in Sidebar" and "Bookmarks Toolbar Folder" in the Bookmarks menu. Since I now have nearly 5000 bookmarks, I do not want anything unnecessary in there. They should have included some way to hide something unwanted.
