Netscape has a large place in the history of the web, but lost out to Microsoft when MS produced IE5. The code was placed in Open Source and a band of brave and talented individuals have been working ever since to deliver a new browser. Mozilla is a complete re-write of the Netscape code (see Joel Spolsky's comments on this here) and while Netscape is using the new code for their own browser, you can download the open source version without Netscape and AOL added value. My first impressions are that it is OK. It strongly resembles the old Netscape, but seems a lot faster and complies with the latest standards. I am not sure if it as good as IE5.5, but it is worth having a look at.

A fast and capable browser, but can it replace Internet Exlorer?
