I fully agree that there should be better advertising of the browser. While there is a download button at the top of Netcenter's home page, I believe there should be a prominent link at all times that specifically says "Download the latest version of Netscape Communicator", or something similar. I think that is definitely lacking.

There should also be stronger advertising pushes behind the browser. Netscape had huge success with Webmail and all the advertising that was put behind it--this needs to now be done for the browser. Netscape has GOT to stop the eroding marketshare.

In other news, Netcenter continues to add new content. Tomorrow, deals with Rolling Stone, Entertainment Tonight, Children's Television Workshop, Headbone Interactive, and MaMaMedia will be announced that will fill out Netcenter's Entertainment and Kids and Family Channels.
