Just on this one: I use the NS Communicator 4.0 now, and it performs
very well yet, as far I can tell from 4 days. Also the mailer is much
improved, can use HTML, and has mutlltiple users and rules to file
your mail from the inboy automatically.
There is a PNG plugin for it from SIEGEL & GALE:
They have it for W95, NT and Power Mäc.
I didn't try it yet, but people might like to know it.
Uh, if I had time to write my own Plugin for NS..
There's another one: Did you ever look at FIF? Fractal
imaging? I have no idea what the policy is, but the images
are great and scalable. http://www.iterated.com
I follow this development since years now, but they didn't
