Where to download Netscape 7.2

I downloaded Netscape 8.X yesterday and HATE it. I'd like to revert to 7.2, which I loved. Every download site I've gone to ONLY allows the download of 8.0. Any suggetions?

Netscape keeps a FTP server running with many of their "old" products

English Netscape 7 here. Jump up a directory if you need another language.

Or directly from Netscape's archived products page.

Not to be all making up my own question to answer, but ...what do you hate? I disabled some features, changed the skin, played with preferences, and I'm happy again.

There must be some logical reason to use Netscape over Firefox, but I can't think of one offhand. They use the same rendering engine, so it can't be that... What is it?

It comes with AOL Instant Messenger(tm) built in! And it has the Netscape logo!

Seriously, I too have the same question...why Netscape? The only reason I can honestly think of is that Netscape users haven't been exposed to Firefox or Mozilla proper. Netscape is literally Mozilla with branding and AOL marketing tie-ins added to the installer...that's it.

And yea, back when I did need Netscape (for reference while working at a helpdesk that had to support it) it was such a PAIN to find old versions; they really make you work for it.
