Try Mozilla
Authored by: seedy on Oct 19, '01 11:13:02AM

Go to Mozilla.org and grab either 0.9.5 for X or a Nightly Build. NC 6.1 is based on 0.9.3 (I think) and is almost unusable on 10.1 compared to the nightly I'm using right now.

As an added plus, they made the New Tab command Cmd-T instead of Ctrl-T.

It won't have the AIM sidebar and a couple of other features, but it will only be an 11 meg download.

Also, you can place aliases of your Bookmarks file, renamed appropriately(Hotlist.html, Favorites.html), in your iCab and Explorer prefs, and they will all use the same bookmarks. You may need to use Tinkertool or the Terminal to make them visible in the User/Library/Preferences.

After looking at my bookmarks files, I found that it had bloated up to 113,000
entries and took up 15+ MB! I used pico to open it and found that my bookmark
entries had been duplicated and reduplicated, making my file blow up so big.
It may be a bug in NS6.1 (which I understand is based on Mozilla 0.9.3, not the
latest version.)


I had been using Mozilla before (I'm an OSS fan) but I couldn't get to my
online banking site or Cisco's online curriculum in addition to lack of
Flash/Quicktime support.

However, based on your comments, I grabbed 0.9.5 and found that it does
everything NS6.1 did, just faster. I quickly rebuilt my bookmarks list (Manage
Bookmarks works much more smoothly than in NS) and the new tabbed windows
features is aweswome!

Thanks for the tip!
