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.

Some of my critisms

1. As of now, there is no multiple back/forward 2. The white "File Edit View Search" bar (it's sooo white! :) ) 3. Sorry IMO the sidebar should not be loaded as default! 4. What is with the gray that sorounds the throbber etc. Then there is a space between the gray and the sidebar (eww!) 5. The sidebar got the "What's related" etc. tabs, but if I hit them all, they go to the bottom/top. It means that buttons i want to press must be found (ie. can't trust your instincts. 6. Yeah you like clean interface, but I like my print button. 7. The "bookmarks home" etc. bar is placed oddly below another bar with just text (too much reading!) 8. I *liked* being able to put my favorite bookmarks in easy reach in 4.x, (but don't <i>really</i> care) 9. the mswheel doesn't work exactly as it does in IE .. .. hey i use the feature all the time. 10. "history" simply does not as slick as IE's 11. Maybe a less radical color scheme for the default? If you LIKE the way an interface looks a lot, there will be people who HATE it just as much. This is why a nice bland thing is good for default! :) 12. No Microsoft Word button! I mean come on folks! Get with the program ;-)

Ok seriosly the Moz UI has some flaws, but I'm happy and getting much happier. But i tout Moz as a christ figure so i want it fullfill the role :) !

**If you "advertise" the ability to skin etc, you should include atleast 3 with the product (like already! :) )
