Where i can download Navigator CE? The distribution is missing from the download center.
as far as I know (and I guess it was discussed somewhere in the past), Bentley Navigator is deprecated product, so I assume it was removed from download pages for this reason.
In fact it was not developed for quite long time. Seeing in my archive, it seems the last version was 10.02, released nearly 1.5 year ago.
The replacement is iTwin Design Review (cloud) service.

This is correct, Bentley Navigator has been depreciated and for desktop "design" review, Bentley has the iTwin Design Review tool available. If you are needing to view via a mobile device, currently only iOS is available, there is a new mobile viewer within SYNCHRO Field application. It has a focus for the construction market and ties back to the SYNCHRO Control offering for office use.

Far too slow compared to the competition.
Hamstrung by the hard-to-use Clip Volume and dodgy clash tools inherited from Mstn.
Poor 2d/3d back-referencing / Hypermodeling support missed the opportunity to double down on Mstn's inherent 'you can ramp up to BIM at your own speed' CAD/BIM modeling advantages... leaving others to fill in the gap.
Hopefully, ITDR will fare better.

We will see. But there is one huge difference (even when compared with competitors): The technology itself is open-source. So anybody can build own client, add own functionality, to sell extra features, using available library and on top of Bentley commercial proprietary iModel Hub (which is primarily iModel specialized cloud ;-).
What I see is that the technology is developed really fast with a lot of interesting ideas for future. I cannot evaluate how valuable it can be for engineering company, but at least with iTwin.js (recently renamed from iModel.js) Bentley have returned back to their origin and where they are the best: to create technology.
I need not-cloud product with best performance and technologies now, not ideas for future. I don't have time and budget to build own client from iModel.js.
