Don't get carried away! Netscape is not a free product at all.

"The Netscape Navigator 1.0N should be used according to the license
"agreement included with the program - it's free to academic and
"non-profit users and free for evaluation use by others. We encourage
"everyone to place an order for Netscape Navigator 1.0, the fully
"supported version of our product.

Moreover, it cannot be obtained "all over the net". The license
agreement explicitly prohibits copying and mirroring of the software.
