Project 5

Netscape reverse engineering and functionalities adding

Time to modify and ameliorate a program that we always use! Netscape is our "surfing brett", a very important tool. As Mammon_ writes: ": more than ever before, a cracker's Web Browser is as vital as his debugger, his disassembler, even his hex editor. It is necessary, then, to trim these browsers so they do not hinder our progress, and to tailor them to a style that suits us".

1) If you are interested in Netscape's hidden "Easter eggs", you can read in the academy also a "generic" essays of mine about hidden strings inside Netscape's Navigator, that you may find interesting, I have not included it here, since it does not add functionalities to our target.

2) If you are interested in Netscape's cache, you can read in the academy also an interesting essay by +MaLaTTiA about Netscape Cache Explorer that you may find interesting, I have not included it here, since it does not add functionalities to our target.
