Note: I had put off downloading Netscape 6.X since I'm perfectly happy with IE6.X but after one user reported that the slideshow in Thumbs didn't work with Netscape 6.X I downloaded it. I got the slideshow to work. The problem is that Netscape 6.X for some unknown reason, automatically escapes double−quotes in a string used in an open−window URL.
Another difference is how to access parts of a document. In IE6 it is sufficient to for example reference a part of the document by name as in
thepicture.width = 20;
but in Netscape you must fully qualify it as in
Why they did this I'm not sure. Maybe it's a disagreement in what the standard is supposed to be. Of course this probably breaks several websites.
Then, trying to see if I could get the resizing that works in IE4−6 to work in Netscape 6.0 Netscape locked up my mouse. Netscape itself locked, I was not able to move the mouse pointer outside the window of netscape to the task bar. Fortunately the keyboard still worked so I was able to bring up the task manager and kill Netscape again.
I guess this means (at least to me) Netscape still has a way to go.
