Daniel, I use Netscape 1, Netscape 2, MSIE and AOLpress simultaneously :
each set of files is in its own directory, I simply made copies of
WINSOCK.DLL in each. In fact, I have two sets of WINSOCKs, one I use with my
CompuServe subscription, the other one with my Wanadoo subscription. When I
want to change my access provider, I just rename WINSOCK.DLL into and WINSOCK.yyy into WINSOCK.DLL. That's not very handy, but it
works, so I can use any of my four browsers with any of my two access
The other problem is with bookmarks : the two Netscapes use the same
bookmark file (I don't know how I got it !), but AOLpress and MSIE have
their own "hotlist".
