Netscape today released version 6.2 of it's browser based on Mozilla. Downloads for a variety of platforms and languages are available (we've linked to the english builds, there are other languages of Netscape 6 available, and we expect that, as in the past, more tranlations of 6.2 will show up later), and you can also check out the release notes. This release comes off the Mozilla 0.9.4 branch, and is the third major release from Netscape using Mozilla.

Password Manager looks for forms with 'password' text fields. When it saves passwords, it saves all the text fields on the page (but not textareas or other form widgets). It uses the content of the first field - in MozillaZine's case, the Title - as the username. There was a bug filed somewhere to make Password Manager smarter and use fields named 'login', 'username' or something in preference to any others when choosing the which field to store as the username but I think it got wontfixed. In any case, it wouldn't prevent the Title field from being saved but it would put the correct username in the Password Manager dialogue.
