Gosh... My NetScape Navigator memories... Heart warming. I really miss NetScape so damn much. You could fool your parents who still use NetScape to use FireFox with this Add-On called "FoxScape" which makes FireFox look identicle to NetScape Navigator 3.0! Good times. It is what I am using now. It is also sad to see Flock dead. Amazing how the second newest browser could die off so quickly. I am looking at the big N throbber. :)

Why is the IE icon from a Mac?

Also, I still live with my parents, so their browser gets updated whenever I want.

HaHaHa. You are funny. My parents died in 1965, and I got my first computer in 1978. I think I am good to go on dealing with my own browser choice. I still use Cbyerdog. :) Do you know Cyberdog?

Never heard of Cyberdog, so I looked it up. There's a big warning on the homepage about a necessary patch to fix a Y2K bug. I can assure you that you are not "good to go on dealing with my own browser choice".

It was a joke, Cregan89. Sorry, I didn't mean to trick you. I use Chrome almost all the time on both PCs and Macs. Otherwise I use Firefox or Safari occasionally voluntarily. I use IE only in the rare event that a website requires it for some purpose--which happens only very seldomly these days. As you probably found out, Cyberdog was a terrible browser that Apple experimented with for a while.

Good idea, parents... grandparents... any relative really. ninite.com should help speed up the process too.
