Browsers


The two most commonly used browsers are MS Internet Explorer (IE) and Netscape.
The AOL browser emulates IE but does not always get it right.

My favorite browser is Netscape, a free download.
Currently, it is version 8, excellent -- but a browser only.
My default browser is the full version of Netscape v. 7.2 which includes a composer/editor. Download the full version.
I use this to create all my web pages.
Both versions are on my computer.

To check and edit web pages with IE which does not include an editor:
Open IE, open the html file you want to check.
Click Tools, Internet Options, Programs: enter Netscape as your HTM: Editor. OK.
Now click File on the IE menu bar. You will see the item Edit with Netscape.
Clicking that will cause Netscape to open -- provided it is installed.
