The Virtual Bookcase Reviews of 'Using Netscape for Windows 95':

Reviewer Rob Slade wrote:
Ernst keeps insisting that Netscape is a lot easier to install than Mosaic. I strongly suspect that this is because the *real* work involved is getting your SLIP (Serial Link Internet Protocol) account and socket layer running. I further suspect that Ernst is writing for an audience that already has Mosaic, and is planning to upgrade. In fact, installation doesn't get a mention until chapter fifteen. Then, after a few pages of ftp session in order to download Trumpet Winsock and Netscape, almost the next thing you read is, "After the Winsock software is installed and running correctly ..." OK, so we won't get much help with installation. Other than the obligatory list of Web sites and history of the Internet, there are two chapters on the functions of Netscape, itself, and six chapters on using ftp, Gopher, telnet, Usenet news, email, and search tools via Netscape. Most of those chapters deal with the Internet tools rather than the Netscape interface. copyright Robert M. Slade, 1995
