Netscape is supported on the Mac, infact it used to come bundled on every new machine. Currently the latest version of Netscape, for OS 9, is Version 7.0.2 Anything later than that will not run. Check the version you downloaded to make sure that you got the correct one. I assume that after you successfully downloaded Netscape, you were able to unstuff it and run the installer without any problems. I have just downloaded and installed NS 7.0 and on completion of the installation it tried to go to a web page that did not exist. An error message "www.netscape.ca could not be found. Please check the name and try again" If this is the error message you got,click OK and go up to the URL line and change the address to something like www.apple.com and all will be well. However, if the message was really about the application not being found, it means you have a broken alias. Open the Hard Drive, navigate to the Netscape folder and find the Netscape application (program) It is inside the Netscape folder, is called Netscape and has the Netscape icon. SINGLE click the icon, go to the file menu and Make an Alias. Alternatively, hold down the Apple key and press "M" to make an alias. Drag the alias onto the desktop and all should be well.
I've got an imac g3 with an os9.2 which came loaded with the Microsoft Outlook browser. I've downloaded the Netscape 7.1 browser successfully, but I'm unable to get the download to 'launch'. When I click on the desktop icon I get a flag up saying that the application 'can't be found'. I'm wondering if perhaps Mac doesn't support the Netscape browser. What steps should I take to complete the installation so that I can use this browser? Thanks, Eric
