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.

I think I'm not alone when I say the choice of color is dark, cold, and unfriendly. The rest of the world uses the less obtrusive light gray as the default (Windows apps, GTK, QT, etc). Something like the Aphrodite chrome would look better IMO. Plus, the buttons extends beyond the blue area, which looks downright weird. Also from the chromes that I have seen so far, none of them have the drop-down list on the forward and back button, like the 4.x browsers have. I hope this would be added eventually.
