I'm not as technical as many others on this board, but I just downloaded Netscape 8.1 and it's very easy to use. I chose the windowscape theme, but I might change it to the fusion theme. I chose the former only because it resembles IE6 (only cooler) and I don't like too many changes. I think it's easier to use than IE7, but choosing a browser is always a personal decision.
For those of you who have never changed browsers, don't forget to import your favorites if you have a lot of bookmarks. I usually dump all my cookies and browser history so I start out fresh. This is my first day using it, so I'll post if I run into any problems. This is the newest version of Netscape.
