Hi friend,As correctly said by other friend netscape is platform independent while IE works on Win and Mc only.Also Netscape is more secure then IE.Also Netscape supports Javascript.I dont know more on Netscape , but we can open different sites in tab format in Netscape which is not possible in IE(I think so).

IE is best because it has been designed to view the broadest range of web pages without major problems. During the heydays of the historic browser wars, Internet Explorer embraced Netscape by supporting many of the progressive features of the time. For a long period after the introduction of version six, there was no further development on the browser. Major development on the browser restarted in 2004 for Windows XP SP2 and continues in IE7.

The major differences between netscape navigator and IE are: Internet explorer supports ActiveX and VBScript, while navigator does not. Internet explorer runs only under Windows and Macintoshes whereas navigator runs on these platforms as well as Unix. Another major limitation of netscape as compared to IE is that not all properties of a page can be changed at any time. This is because when the webpage once written to the screen, only position, visibility and clipping can be manipulated dynamically.

I too will recommend "Mozilla Firefox" over the other 2 browsers that you are talkin about. Firefox is a free Browser that you can download on the internet. Its a very small setup file and will take you around a couple of minutes. File size is about 5.7MB. Firefox defiantly "Faster" and you can customize it better. Plus the security features that the Firefox browser brings along are atleast a 100 times more. Again..... Firefox comes with an inbuilt "Spell check". You dont need to double check what you type. You can type the whole of your text and then correct your spellings in one go. It makes it very simple. Take Care...... Enjoy Mylot and be Safe...... :)
