User-Agent Strings - Netscape - Full

We keep only the most current and major releases in the main page. This is the complete list of all Netscape strings that we have ever found or received - including those on the main page.

Netscape

Netscape is no more. The netscape page now states that official support ended on 1st March 2008 though you can still download release 9, 8, 7 and the venerable 4 from the site. They recommend using Firefox or Flock (interesting). The last Version 9 was called Navigator again which as Deyan Mavrov reminded us is the first time they used the name since NS4.x (now that was a release). Since version 8 they used the firefox base with their own stuff added and a very slick graphic design (IOHO). Previous versions used the full Mozilla build (now seamonkey). Wonder who uses it - we guess it's just folks who have always used Netscape. End of an era. Sigh.

Netscape Navigator 9.x

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.8pre) Gecko/20071019 Firefox/2.0.0.8 Navigator/9.0.0.1

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.8.1.5pre) Gecko/20070712 Firefox/2.0.0.4 Navigator/9.0b2

Explanation: Netscape Navigator 9 and as Deyan points out the first to use the name since 4.8 (oh by, do we remember 4.8). String from Deyan Mavrov - thanks.

Netscape 8.x

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20050519 Netscape/8.0.1

Explanation: A real Firefox based Netscape 8 with a security patch (already) on Win 2K. Using Gecko base of 1.7.5 not current 1.7.8. String from Joseph Christianson - thanks.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20050512 Netscape/8.0

Explanation: A real Netscape 8 on XP - definitely based on Firefox and which you can get here . String from Jonathan McCormack - thanks.

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20050302 Firefox/0.9.6

Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 1.1.4322) NS8/0.9.6

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7) Gecko/20041122 Firefox/0.5.6+

Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:1.7.2) Gecko/20040804 Netscape/7.2 (ax)

Explanation: Netscape 7.2 and still we're wondering what's the (ax)?

Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; FreeBSD 5.0 i686)

Explanation: This is Netscape 7.02 on FreeBSD. Honestly. Its included for two reasons. Gratuitous publicity for FreeBSD (the next big thing IOHO) and because of what you can do with the user.js file to disguise your browser. A stats guys nightmare. String from FreeBSD buff John Rendlesham.

Netscape Navigator 1.x

Mozilla/1.1N (Windows; I; 32bit)
