I have a IICI that currently has 7.1 and runs Netscape 2.0....20 megs ram. I'm running into lots of crashes on the net due to what I think are Java issues. (Get Java error windows) Which Netscape should I up grade to and which system should I be running to avoid these crashes. Can't go to PowerPC and can only bump ram up to 32 megs max. Where do I go to get the system downloaded?

Thanks
Shirley

Java doesn't work properly with any browser made by anyone. That is just the way it is. But, Netscrape 3.0.1 or 4.0.7 stand_alone are much more stable than version 2.x. I would use 4.0.7 stand_alone (no email, news, etc.) because it uses less memory.

For email get Eudora Light 3.1.3.

The most stable MacOS for a IIci is MacOS 7.5.5. You must upgrade from MacOS 7.5.3. MacOS 7.5 is no longer available for purchase. It may become free someday, but don't hold your breath. The upgrade from 7.5 to 7.5.x is free, so all you need are the original disks. Try garage sales, the paper, usenet, beg a friend (or your local repair shop), etc.

After a successful upgrade to MacOS 7.5.5, upgrade to OpenTransport 1.1.2 and QuickTime 2.5. Yer all set.
