Hi,
I notice that there is a lot of delay when i load my servlets a jsps using Netscape 4.7. The servlets / jsps are hosted on Tomcat server.
But they r loaded quite faster in Internet explorer. Any idea y???

This happens consistently? I mean, if you hit the refresh button in Netscape, it still takes a long time? Or only the first time?

Netscape 4.n has a notoriously bad display engine. Chances are that your response contains HTML that is taking the Netscape engine a long time to display. For example, deeply nested tables can drive it nuts! There are also certain combinations of CSS elements that I've found cause it to take forever to display the page.
If performance on Netscape 4.n is important for your app, you're best bet is to examine the resulting HTML for complexities (the deeply nested table instance being a likely suspect), and to simplify it when sending a respone to Netscape.
hth,
bear
