NETSCAPE SECURITY UPDATE- All users of Netscape versions between 2.0 and 4.0, inclusive, should read this. Get the 4.05 version the fix this and all other "known" maladies.
For Users of Version 4 Netscape's Smart Update Page Now you don't have to update everything to get a new component to your Internet Suite. Check this out, it works really well. 
Another thing that you can do with Netscape that can't be done with Internet Explorer is upload files. If you found a good shareware or trial version of a program and would like to share it with everyone, take this link, choose File and Upload File... After you successfully upload, you should then send  a short email description along with the size and filename to me. You can also do this with an ftp client
I gathered this information in a variety of ways, PCWORLD and TipWorld sent a great deal of it. Netscape Pages contributed a lot. I got most of it by trial and error in the last couple of years using Netscape Browsers. Some of it was gained in quite painful experiences. Since I did not supply ALL of it first hand, neither I nor ECS nor CSS will guarantee ANY of it. I WILL say simply, "It works for me." While this page is in its heavy construction period, The info is pretty much going to be in NO particular order. When the activity slows a bit I will try to "tame" it somewhat. Any Questions or tips to contribute? Send them! I'll post them along with your name or nickname (if you wish) and the date I received them.
