Browser frenzy! PC World brings the browsers to you

The Gecko engine promises lightning-fast page rendering. While I found some pages loaded more quickly, it remained inconsistent. We didn't put Gecko to any formal tests with this release, but in quick trials I found Netscape 6 wasn't faster than Internet Explorer or Communicator on many pages.

With Netscape 6 Preview Release 2, Netscape primarily focused on rounding out the feature set, Goldfarb says. "For Preview Release 3, we'll work on enhancing stability and fixing bugs," he adds.

Meanwhile, Netscape continues to update the Communicator family now on version 4.74 (there will not be a Version 5). Perhaps with the final release of Netscape 6 due later this year, Netscape will deliver the revolutionary Gecko browser it has promised.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
