    Hi guys! Anyone here still using Netscape?

    Here's my reason for asking...I am planning to use BIR's eFPS system which requires either IE or Netscape.

    I am very concerned about the security of Netscape since support for it has ended. And doing my transactions online might mean security-related problems.

    As much as possible, I wouldn't like to run Windows on my Mac (for IE) as this would mean buying a license...ergo...unwanted expense.

    Can someone please help me with your expert opinions? Thanks. :rolleyes:

    Netscape has closed. It no longer exists.
    You can try Mozilla FireFox.

    My novice opinion: use a PC if you don't want to install XP or Vista via Boot Camp unfortunately. :cool:

    Dear Fellow Countrymen,

    I NEED YOUR KIND HELP!

    I am a Filipino student from National Cheng Kung University in Taiwan and I am currently looking for current users of the eFPS or the online tax filing system of BIR. If you are a user of eFPS, I would like to ask for your precious time to be my respondent by answering my survey questionnaire. This would help a lot for my study to be robust, for BIR to improve the e-tax system and for me to graduate on time. :)

    If you're not a user, I know you are kind enough also to help me forward this to users of the eFPS

    Here's the link to the survey:
    https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dHhqQmI0WFFyQnVaVUZWS0tSbTJkaVE6MQ#gid=0

    I know I'm asking too much for a favor but I really highly appreciate your sincere participation. If you have questions don't hesitate to email me on [email protected]

    Before this outdated thread gets more ridiculous, i'm shutting it down.

    for those still looking for netscape, get it here:
