Welcome Back…Now Go Away

August 21, 2002

While it doesn’t show up on Netscape’s main download site. Navigator 4.8 is available for download from their FTP site{.liftp}. The Windows, Mac, and Linux versions are all there in their shining, poor rendering, over 5 year-old glory. Will Netscape ever end the 4.x product line? Is version 4.99999999 next?

I’m typing this from NS 4.8 and I really can’t see changes. It actually seems a little faster, but that could be my imagination. While I can be overly critical, it’s still better than Navigator 3.
