"Netscape has released Version 6.0, the Web browser that looks
like a fashion show."
"Available for the PC, Mac and Linux platforms, Netscape 6.0 has
taken Version 4.7, the dependable browser in a Wall Street business
suit, and moved it to the East Village, complete with nose ring and
dyed orange hair."
"The default interface is consciously hip-looking. Like those
tall platform shoes, it's stylish, but not right for everyone. In
this case, the look is a "theme."
"You can revert to the "classic" theme in which the stop button
looks like a stoplight instead of an "X." And there are other
themes available for download on the Web site."
"But if you can get past the themes and some other annoyances,
you'll find a solid technical underpinning."
