Check out Opera.  The new version is very fast and uses far less memory than
others.  The more I use it the more I like it.

Actually, I've had it happen with Netscape 4.76 merely running for hours,
not days.  I am running XFree86 4.01 and KDE 2.1, so it's not version
specific for X or KDE.  My Mom has been pretty happy with Netscape 6.01.
It still freezes, but less than 4.76 did for her.  She runs XFree86 4.01
and KDE 2.01 so far.  So... I'll probably load 6.01 on my system, but I do
think perhaps I should use another browser.  Pity.

All the best,
