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.

I have talked to a couple of the guys on the project a while back, and what they do is spurts of development as the main code base matures.

It would be a waste of time for them to come up with every M release for testing. I was suprised that they have not posted an alpha build, however.

Anyways, these guys have proven that they do a good job working in spurts on the project, so I have faith that they are going to keep up.
