Well, as much as I hate to say it, printing under Netscape (in
a win-os2 session) is much faster than WebExplorer under OS/2.
For some reason it looks like WebEx is using my printer (24 pins,
epson LQ-500 compatible) in graphical mode while Netscape is
using some text mode. Yet, the output of both is similar in
Now, if printing speed was the only factor I would
probably go with WebEx rather than a windows app, but there are
other problems as well. WebEx will often *under heavy SLIP
traffic (with the usual message, "...link was abandonned...")
whereas Netscape won't. When printing from WebEx, everything
is shifted to the right (so much in fact that sometimes, lines
are clipped). Netscape prints OK. And finally, I can copy
selected text in a web page under Netscape (can't do that under
The only good thing about WebEx is the drag'n'drop of URLs. But
it is my understanding that the latest beta of Netscape (along with
the win95 shell) can do that as well. Hard times for users of OS/2...
