netscape portable

I think it would be good to make the netscape browser as a portable app because it is my favourite browser and i use it all the time. It would also be good for at school.:)

Illegal

As a closed commercial product, it cannot be modified.

Open source

Unlike Netscape, Firefox is released under an open source license. (And, we're able to keep the Mozilla name and Firefox branding due to a licensing agreement I'm working out with Mozilla.) Even though Netscape uses Firefox code internally, the end product is NOT open source. So you can't modify it and redistribute it.
