For possibly ever more results, remember to use case insensitive
option, -i, to grep.

Communicator has browser plus mail, news, and possibly other junk.
Navigator port has/is only the browser.
BTW, about two are listed as being for DEC Alpha.

These two, w/ corresponding description above, run just fine on
FreeBSD 4/i386, w/ emulators/linux_base* ports & linux compatibility

This is somewhat like AOL Netscape branded browser w/ Mozilla
engine. Never used it or care to know anything more.
So, it depends entirely on you if you want the old versions of
Netscape or new, or w/ or w/o extra baggage.
