Yeah, that's cool, but does anyone actually use netscape anymore?
Is this supported in the old 4.x Netscape as well as the new 6.x Netscape?

| The command "netscape -help" prints out a list of command-line
| options for netscape (I'm using version 4.73).

| -remote <remote-command> to execute a command in an already-running
| Netscape process. For more info, see

| netscape -remote "openURL(www.wbix.org, new-window)"
| So you can write a script or program to manipulate a URL
| any way you want and then call it up in Netscape.
| Or one could put a list of URLs in a file, and then run
| a script that calls up each one in Netscape, pauses while
| it loads, and prints it out as postscript to a file or
| the printer.
| Or an application program could use Netscape to display
| fancy context-sensitive help screens.
