Name of Netscape Browser?

Friday February 11th, 2000

I've gotten a number of submissions to a news article that supposedly gives the name of Netscape's next branded browser as Netscape 6.0. However, from talking to some folks at Netscape, I have found out that they have not yet settled on a name, so this news is premature (as, apparently, was our mention of the name Netscape 2001). We will let you know when we have a concrete answer.

It is a bit early, but maybe they are talking about a beta, but then I saw this:

"The new browser looks similar to Communicator 4.7, with some noticeable differences, according to Merrill Lynch analyst Henry Blodget, who attended the AOL briefing. " Would noticable differances include things like round buttons, a totally differant layout, new icons and not forgetting the new colours?

"Netscape 6.0's technology also will support AOL's moves onto non-PC devices, according to Bentley. AOL is trying to push its service onto PDAs, cell phones, TV set-top boxes and other remote products as a way to keep its customers on its services." Sounds like Mozilla to me, there has been loads of talk about putting Mozilla in set top boxes etc, and I guess it would work on a PDA.
