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.

It doesn't. For one thing, it doesn't do color separation, which is the whole point of Photoshop. That hasn't fazed the hordes of Linux zealots who insist it's better, though. This is the sort of weird falsehood I constantly encounter when poking into Linux software that I'm told is great -- or used to encounter, before I gave up.
