Microsoft has recently issued a new version of Internet Assistant for
Windows 95 (a Macintosh version is coming soon, they say). According to
the blurb on their home page (,
the new version supports the "very latest HTML tags" and allows you to
create "full-featured Web pages." Most of the comments on the list
appear to be on the older 3.1 version. Has anyone used this newer
version? If so, what are your impressions?
