Your question made me curious so I pulled up Netscape and went to one of My
customer's sites. You can imagine my surprise when I discovered that my
customer's SSL Cert was expiring today at 11:00 AM. The network admin is out
of town on a cruise and not reachable. The other principal was not
reachable.... You get the idea. Anyhow, we got an updated Cert from Verisign
and found the password and installed it.

The moral of this story is:

Check your certs and put the expirations in your calendar.

I just updated my netscape-communicator to version 4.76. It says it
  This version supports U.S. security with RSA Public Key Cryptography,

However, it doesn't specifically state "strong" encryption or 128 bit.
In the security parts of help, it also does not specifically say 128
bit. Does anyone know a means of specifically testing it for 128 bit on
a given SSL web page? In my old version 4.73 I believe I could do this
and know with certainty a given page had 128 bit encryption. I would
like to test not just my particular browser for the ability, but a given
page (clicking on the "lock" icon in the lower left while at an SSL page
does not seem to tell me exactly what encryption level is being used
