The new update brings new features like anti-spyware tool and support for RSS. Netscape 8.1 is a freely downloadable browser application from the AOL website. The browser application would now scans all downloads conducted via the browser and blocks suspicious files.

The latest version also comes with an updated security center and displays status indicators that show the browser’s current settings for defensive measures against phishing and popup ads. It also alerts the user if he has enabled automatic updates for the browser or not. The application features auto update facility, which enables the user to stay up-to-date with latest security and stability updates.

I have been using Netscape v7.2 for a long time now and wish to upgrade to v8.1
Would I need to first un-install the current version and re-boot and then install the new version?
I have already downloaded the file: nsb-install-8-1.exe which is a 18.3 MB volume.
What would happen to my current email client and email files, could I get them back on line?
I remember having hugh problems when I upgraded from v6 to v7.2
Am I in for some of the same? Is it all worth it? I am already using Lavasoft antispy software, but do find the current v7.2 slow and cumbersome with my P-III-550 MHz / 256 MB ram setup.
Will the new version really speed things up and make surfing more stable?
Comments please?
