Netscape Communicator uses more memory than you think

...and other Communicator matters Last time, we mentioned that the new beta version of Netscape Communicator requires significantly less memory than previous versions. However, as pointed out by several readers, this reduction may be more illusory than real. The new version also takes up as much a 3 - 8 Mb of your System Software memory. (Thanks especially to Wade Masshardt.)

A couple of readers also complained about sound-related conflicts with the Audio Tuneup extension (which did not even get installed on my Mac!).

Readers also reportvarious conflicts with Communicator and Web Quick 1.4.

On the plus side, Communicator gets text to load a lot faster than previous versions of Navigator did.
