I have found Netscape 4 to be reasonably stable (Every version of
Netscape on every O/S crashes sometimes :-). It is as fast as
previous versions, or seems to be. I haven't looked at IE 4.0
preview yet, but when I tried out IE 3.0 I had problems with it.
Maybe it was just personal preference. As for security, IE is *not*
secure, probably because MS tried to integrate it into the O/S without
proper testing. Maybe they've fixed all the problems now. Haven't
noticed any security problems with Netscape ...

My auto proxy configuration works fine. I had a slight problem with
it -- when you change proxy type, I think you need to quit and start
again for it to pick up the change. That was the case with the
preview versions, at least.

Can't help you with this one
