Netscape 6 Netscape 6 is based on open source engine (Gecko), while Netscape Communicator 4.8 uses the engine that originally released in late 1994 and has been modified and enhanced through the evolution of internet. Netscape 6 is the first standards compliance of any browser ever released. This is made possible by the small, fast, standards-compliant, free, open-source, cross-platform, cross. In its older (7.x) incarnations, Netscape represents one of the few remaining opportunities for users of 'Classic' Mac OS to access a more modern browser that is largely compatible with today's more advanced web standards. Version 7.02 was the final release for 'Classic' Mac OS, and it. If you want to keep using the Classic Mac OS but want to avoid using Internet Explorer, Netscape 7.x is well worth checking out. System Requirements. Mac OS 8.6 and later; Mac OS 9.1 or later highly recommended; Mac OS X 10.x; PowerPC 604e 266 MHz or faster processor, G3, or G4; 64 MB RAM; 36 MB of free hard disk space. About Netscape for Mac Netscape Navigator was developed by the team who had created the Mosaic web browser at the National Center for Supercomputing Applications. The company they created was initially named 'Mosaic Communications Corporation' and their web browser 'Mosaic Netscape ', but a legal challenge from NCSA over the rights to the name.
