Important note about Netscape:
The Tasty Morsels CD-ROM included with YDL 2.2 ships with a version of Netscape that has numerous known security vulnerabilities. A newer or fixed version of Netscape is not available for the PowerPC Linux platform. We recommend that you use an alternative browser such as Mozilla or Konqueror. Both ship with YDL 2.2. and have similar feature sets to Netscape. Another choice is Opera, a low-cost commercial web browser that works very well on YDL 2.2.
