It's gotten to the stage where I flinch every time I close windows in
case Netscape crashes - it's seriously flaky.  Has it always been that bad?

Netscape under Solaris is great though (Sun tweaked it themselves); it's
faster, smoother and much more stable.

I don't think it's ever crashed on me, but the FreeBSD version has
some problems with Konquerer.  I can't remember the details, the
guy who created the port posted to -stable a while back.

The source for 1.92 should be available in a couple of days.
