Netscape, nowadays, is Firefox with AOL bloat. Dump it.

Firefox is faster
Firefox has tabs
Firefox has higher security
Firefox has better popup blocking

the tabs feature is probably the #1 most noticable reason why it's way better, that and the speed

I work in IT as a computer technician and whenever I do any reimages (reinstalling the OS) I recommend to the user trying FireFox since we support it and it now comes on our image. Most are very receptive and tell me later they'd never go back. It's great b/c it will import all your IE data so you don't have to rebuild your Favorites list.

This one guy I work with, instead of explaining the differences to the user and helping them switch (like I do), he just deletes the IE icon and renames the FireFox icon "Internet Explorer" and the people never know the difference!
