Use mozilla or galeon is my recomendation. Netscape is just mozilla
with the netscape brand and binary-only distributions. I use galeon
because I like the GNOME UI better. If you install the j2sdk1.3
package (from a blackdown mirror) then you will have java support.
Are you looking for anything else in a browser?
