    wluke &gt; I went to your site and it crashed Netscape 4.61 for Linux erasing my long answer.

    Very weird because there is literally nothing in the site but pure HTML and 2 java scripts from CNET to display their boxes. I'll take a look at it though.

    Sorry. Netscape crashed a bunch more times later. I think my netscape cache file was being read by two computers at one causing the crash (though it happen exactly when I view your site.)

    Ouch. It crashed Netscape on my home PC too! Definately something wrong... It was loading something from bfast when the crash occured. (The gory details: NETSCAPE caused an invalid page fault in
    module NETSCAPE.EXE at 0177:004073a9.)

    I wouldn't worry about checking your site to see if it freezes on Netscape/Linux because even plain old &lt;h1&gt;s and then just text can freeze it.

    Netscape for Linux is mediocre at best. Netscae 6 for linux is a little better at least.

    Yeah but I checked it just now in Netscape for Windows... It crashed as well. And my guess is that Netscape for Macs will crach as well. That is a good portion of a potential audience.

    I found out what the cause was. I had a news box from CNET on the screen and its use of IFRAMES was causing Netscape to crash and burn. YOu would think a big company like CNET would make sure their code was cross-browser compatible. Guess I'll have to use Moverover instead.

    The page is up for Netscape users now but it still needs a little tweaking to look right though. I'll be working on it because an entire element of the site has just plain disappeared in Netscape. Thanks Owen for letting me know..

    No problem... it seems like CNET would be smarter than that. Oh, and I forgot to say that I was using Windows in my second post.
