Netscape Releases Netscape 6.2

Tuesday October 30th, 2001

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.

> just how many major or critical bugs are open for 0.9.6 at the moment ? I bet you it's a lot less than the "1082" he's claiming <

His claim is for all bugs targeted at that release, not just major and critical. The number I get at <http://bugzilla.mozilla.o…se+same+sort+as+last+time> is 1062, close enough for government work. For blocker, major and critical I get 261 at <http://bugzilla.mozilla.o…se+same+sort+as+last+time> .

Seems like it's still OK to play fast and loose with the facts when bashing "idiots."

> yes, I've tried Konqueror and it's JavaScript support is dismal - how people fail to mention this in places like Slashdot and the like is beyond me <

I have that experience just about every time someone tells me to try a "great" program on Linux. They're all excited and I look at it and maybe play with it for a little while, and it seems like crap to me. That's why I've come to the conclusion that Linux zealots have bad taste in software. It seems like all that it takes to make software "great" is that it's free and it runs under Linux....
