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.

Who cares? The average user certainly doesn't, because the average user will only use Mozilla on one platform.

"Some people want to use system colours, but system colours only work properly on windows (look at the CSS2 spec, and you'll see why)."

Well, you'd better start implementing moz-css hacks for the things (such as scrollbar thumb color) which are missing for Mac -- otherwise no ordinary Mac user is going to take Mozilla seriously.

"Some people want a nicer looking 'conservative' look, or a nicer looking 'cool' look, regardless of colour choice: note that the colours required to do this would probably be outside the web safe colour palette."

Given that you'd be using CSS system colors, the CSS system colors would be extracted from the OS setttings, and the OS settings are already be being used by every other app on the system ... why would it be at all relevant that those colors weren't in the Web-safe color palette?
