Netscape 6 Debuts Tomorrow

Tuesday April 4th, 2000

Steve Case of AOL will be at InternetWorld tomorrow launching the latest version of Netscape's browser suite, Netscape 6. This might seem an anticlimactic followup to the leaked version that appeared a few days ago, but it will be one more thing to celebrate at the anniversary party on the 6th.

UPDATE: You can watch the webcast tomorrow at the AOL corporate site.

Think about THIS: How hard and long has the Mozilla/Netscape team worked on the default skin so far? How much is left to do?

Do you really think that people are going to invest that much time into making a skin for it themselves? Sure, some will...but for the most part people don't have the time nor the know-how to do it. And the average Joe cares not about what's under the hood - He/She cares what if it looks cool.

I'm not saying that Mozilla is going to completely fail because the default skin sucks. Just that it won't catch on as quickly otherwise.
