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.

"I didn't really want to tie up my dial-up connection for 5 hours to get 6.x."

Five hours? How slow is your connection? I haven't downloaded 6.2 on a dial-up but I have 6.1. If you choose not to install all the useless stuff, e.g. Net2Phone, RealPlayer, Winamp and Flash (I assume you already have the last three), it'll take a couple of hours at the most (this is on a 56Kbps connection). I think you can skip Java too as it'll just use the 6.1 JVM. Not certain though.
