Netscape released early source code for navigator 5 yesterday at www.mozilla.org. I'm not a real c++ kind of guy, so I'm looking for other people who have built and compiled to a windows binary. Anyone know of a website where I can find this?

Navigator 5 isn't much different than Nav 4 right now, because the source code has been released so that we, the developers of the world, can upgrade and make better the Mozilla client.  If you are not of the type that is able to debug and fix problems with unstable C++ code, I would not suggest getting a built copy of Netscape 5 at all until Netscape themselves releases a new production version of it.

Sorry, but that didn't exaclty answer my question. I know its unstable and early and all that. I am _still_ looking for a win32 build.

As soon as I get Borland C++ 4.53 installed on my computer, I will begin the process of building Netscape 5 on my computer, and will hopefully post the compiled binary for Win95 on my page.  Leave comments here if you are interested in this project.

I found a win32 version at http://mozbin32.hypermart.net/

It is reasonably stable under my NT4 sp3.

It is recommended that you have NS4 to set up a separate user profile first.

The file itself is at http://mozbin32.hypermart.net/mozbin32_331_c.zip

Have fun - Several browser stat pages already have MOZILLA 5 registered.
