RE: Software Upgrades

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

Don't jump to any conclusions.  I still use Netscape Communicator 4.05
for browsing, because it is still better than Internet Explorer 4.01.
But Outlook 98 is now my email client.  Windows 98 co-exists with
Netscape just fine (sort of like Dennis & Bill).

You guys work for Bill Gates or what? By the way, Netscape is free also.
