Neither - go for Mozilla instead. It's the open source version of
Netscape - in fact NS6 is based on Mozilla. However, Mozilla is far mroe
current than NS6 (the latest version of Mozilla is light years ahead of
NS6 in terms of stability and performance). Grab the latest Win32
talkback build from here:


Once you've got mozilla there are plenty of funky things you can do with
it, such as adding gesture recognition: http://optimoz.mozdev.org/gestures/

I'm currently considering writing my first ever Evolt article about
Mozilla, with a bit of advocacy and a whole load of practical advice on
how to get the most out of the browser (good add-ons, configuration
options, where to get skins, that kind of thing). I don't know if
there's much interest in this though, I get the idea from this list that
I might at least in part be preaching to the converted...
