Well, if it is an EXE, users can just download it. If you are looking
for no touch deployment or hosting .NET inside of the browser, I don't
know of any other browsers that will support this.

If you are referring to a .ASPX (ASP.NET) web page, then you can use
any browser, as the .NET code executes on the server, and the client
only sees HTML.

ASP.NET can generate ANY HTML you want. It can be compatible with any
browser. Most likely Netscape has some problems with parsing HTML,
that's all.

I have found .NET to not render properly in many browsers. Netscape
4.X is horrible with .NET. You can set the target browser in your web
project, but this does not seem to help.

I frequently use the site tools we link to for checking the validity
of my HTML and rendering. The 'anyBrowser' group has excellent links
(http://www.anybrowser.org/campaign/ablinks.html) to sources that will
emulate various (hundreds) browsers. Try some of the free tools from
the links at http://www.tranquillitas.com/resources/journals.aspx
(this is not a plug for the company website since these links are all
external).

Many browsers don't render <span> and <div> tags properly, if at all.
This seems to be the backbone of ASP.NET.
