You won't get too far without the version of Netscape you are running.
I have had Netscape eat all available RAM from:
1. Poorly written Java Applets - there are a kazillion out there.
2. Poorly written plug-ins - I was the author of this one.
My favorite browser is Lynx but my wife & kids use Netscape. Besides the two
problems I mentioned, it works well. I use NS4.07 on an i486 with 24MB of RAM
under RedHat 5.2.
