Netscape has lots of memory leaks.  the worst seem to be in Javascript, with
java being a close second.  I find I get the best performance and stability
out of it if I leave those off, except when you need them.  I also keep the
memory cache size small, 2 or 3 megs;  I leave the disk cache at a large

job of not throwing stuff away that I am actually using, so that works out
quite well.
