OT: What browsers does NS5 encompass? - Macromedia Dreamweaver

Hello all, I know it sound weird asking about Netscape 5, but my WebTrends reports are logging NS5 browsers. There aren't many, but I'm curious as to what may have identified itself as such. WebTrends also identifies a large number of "Other Netscape Compatible" browsers. Any thoughts on what those could be? Given that this is a site for our corporate retirees, I'm betting it's mostly AOL browsers or something along that line given AOL isn't listed in the stats. Best regards, Chris...

    Default OT: What browsers does NS5 encompass?

    Hello all,

    I know it sound weird asking about Netscape 5, but my WebTrends reports are
    logging NS5 browsers. There aren't many, but I'm curious as to what may
    have identified itself as such.

    WebTrends also identifies a large number of "Other Netscape Compatible"
    browsers. Any thoughts on what those could be? Given that this is a site
    for our corporate retirees, I'm betting it's mostly AOL browsers or
    something along that line given AOL isn't listed in the stats.

    Best regards,
    Chris

    others will likely have a more complete answer... but as I understand things
    from Eric Meyer, whatever version of AOL a user has, they have that version
    of Internet Explorer...

    Almost certainly a search engine spider, same thing mostly applies to
    apparent Netscape 2 visits.
