I'm running on Netscape 2.0 and find I crash alot. Would like to upgrade to Netscape 3.0. I'm on a Mac IICi, system 7.1 with 20 megs ram. I will be upgrading  ram to 32 and system 7.5.3. Will this be OK? Where can I get Netscape 3.0 for Mac and is Netscape 4.0 for PowerPC only? Suggestions appreciated.

you should be able to run netscape 3 and 4 on that computer...Your only issue might be speed as they tend to take more ram and are slower. Its really a judgement call on your part...You can find them on netscapes ftp

Guess I'm not quite up to this procedure. When I go
I see a list of directories and have clicked on them but they don't go anywhere...can't seem to search what I'm looking for. What is this?

check older software CDs that you may have sitting around. It was often included in "Extras"
