If you see this symbol on this website, it means that the website indicated by the URL beside this symbol is not "friendly" to Netscape 4.78 and, most likely, other browsers of that generation (i.e., HTML 2.0). With the release of newer versions of the HTML specification and software tools written for that newer spec, many people are writing HTML code that is not compatible with older versions of the HTML spec. In some cases, the browser just can't interpret the newer HTML tags properly or, in worse cases, Netscape 4.x will just crash. In order to view the websites properly, you probably have to upgrade to the latest versions of these browsers:
|Web browser||Works on||Download now|
|Microsoft's Internet Explorer||6.0 for Windows 98 and beyond
5.x for Macintosh
|Mozilla's Firefox||Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, Unix|
|Apple Computer's Safari||OS X/Windows|
Why did I bother to highlight these websites? Well, as a dance customer, I know that I wouldn't have bothered to go to those sites with Netscape 4.x (or equivalent) if I knew that the website wasn't going to work with my browser. I'm saving some readers some aggravation: if they only have an older browser, they know they won't need to bother going to that website.
Webmasters should note that some people are still on dial-up modems and downloading a new browser might take a *long* time. Some might still be on older operating systems that can't support new browsers and buying a new computer is out of the question. I did find it amusing that some of these browser webpages don't work well with Netscape 4.x so the process of looking for a newer browser isn't that pleasant an experience.
Note: As time goes on, I'm less likely to bother testing my pages with Netscape 4.78. Official support for Windows 98 has ended so there's not much reason to continue using Netscape 4.78.
