Interesting that Mosaic might be staging a comeback, as I began with M. a
year ago but then found Netscape 1.1 to be a vast improvement.
Something that has not been mentioned in this thread, though, is ease of
editing hotlists/bookmark lists. Netscape 1.1, unless I'm missing some key
feature, is a royal pain when it comes to copying, moving, duplicating,
transferring Web bookmarks. It's one of its most salient drawbacks, IMHO.
Are there remedies for this (relatively minor) annoyance? Does the new
Mosaic offer more flexibility here?
