PC Magazine's First Look At Communicator 4.5

Monday October 19th, 1998

Joel Caris writes in to say, "This link is to a First Look of Communicator 4.5 from PC Magazine. A nice review. Might be of interest.

On a side note, those that have checked out the front page of Netcenter today will see that Netscape is finally giving decent promotion to the browser. There is a prominent link (red, to set it apart) and the Download button has been changed to make it clear you can download 4.5 by clicking it. Hopefully, the links will stay up until 5.0 comes out.

In my opinion, Netscape has in no way been promoting the browser enough. I hope to see a strong push and advertising campaign behind 4.5."

They should promote version 5 ala AOL: a freakin' cd in every magazine. A stand at computer stores with free CD's would be nice too. Make it eazy for people to pick it up and install. Downloading over the modem is a barrier when your OS comes with a browser from day one. One of the reasons startbucks is so successful is because they are there. Around every corner and neighbourhood. Netscape should do the same. CD's are cheap.

To my knowledge Netscape has not done this, if they have please correct me. Even if they have in the past, they should really step it up.
