I dunno about what effect WIN '95 will have during it's first year (MS'
track record with new releases is long but lousy; full of bugz) but having
used Netscape 1.0 and 1.1, with all the enhanced goodies of "Club Netscape"
has to offer and now using the final Beta of Mosaic, I'll take NCSA Mosaic
any day. Thier caching is faster, there "file reading" is faster and I like
the GUI somewhat more aswell. THhere is, at least on my machine, a 15 - 20
percent speed increase, when loading the same url's. Big difference when
there is a 100+k gif or JJPG being loaded. Although, with the "club
netscape" enhancements, you do get to see the coloured background on my own
web site. Apparently though, this is going to be a part of the *new* HTML
guidlines, and so suture editions of web browsers should incorporate it.
