yes, remove netscape 6 and run:

apt-get update
apt-get install mozilla

mozilla is much better then netscape 6 which is just an older mozilla
snapshot with lots of AOL crap layered on top.   however mozilla is
still a bit sluggish compared to netscape 4 (mostly in the UI, the
rendering tends to be faster)
