Guides on emulating older applications

Netscape version 2.0 introduced a bevy of must-have breakthrough features; frames, (optional) Java, JavaScript, animated GIFs and Plug-Ins.

Developed by Netscape Communications, this is a fast and full-featured web browser.

Key features of Netscape 2.0 include client-side image mapping; progressive JPEG rendering; Netscape Plug-Ins for streamed audio and video; integrated e-mail and threaded news; enhanced document formatting tools including multiple, simultaneous, independently-scrollable frames; and support for Java applets.

Version 2.0 added a full mail reader called Netscape Mail, thus transforming Netscape from a mere web browser to an Internet suite.

The Custom Install lets you choose between 68k, PPC or FAT.
