I'm currently running ver 4.7, and want to upgrade is there

I personally wouldn't install netscape, but that is my personal taste. Many users on this board recommend phoenix, mozilla, or Opera, because they are small, fast, and work with nearly every webpage.
But if you like netscape, I'd say go with the latest available:
7.02 (download below)
Usually the latest have fixed or addressed several bugs, or issues from the previous version.
I used 7.0 and thought it worked rather well.

Now's the time to try Phoenix, it's great
Oh and Techzonez has the World famous Phoenix skin maker Lynchknot

No I have no special attachemnt to NS, although I do use it at work, (assume these other wouldn't be a problem), don't have any attachment to IE either, its that recently I found a few sites that NS had problems with and I had to switch to IE to resolve.
OK of the others mentioned which on is the cream of the crop ?

I say try them all, find the one that suits you. Lynchknot is our neighborhood Phoenix skinner.. he does some pretty slick themes for Phoenix.. but I think they are all pretty good..
Try them, find the flavor that suits you and tell us why you chose it.

all bets are off...
That's the only reason I dropped Netscape and went back to IE. Netscape is quite a good looking and functional browser. I also find it almost twice as quick as IE when visiting most sites.

You might need to configure it. I know the fonts might be different, but it is very tweakable. You might notice that the icons in the address bar work now, as opposed to before.
Try out the different skins and themes to mozilla, there are quite a few. Then try out Phoenix and Opera.
They all have good points and bad points.
