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.

And it seems that this 'browser deathmatch' is going to be the closest thing we get to a review of 6.2 (funny, as they did a review of 6.01 and that was really minor). CNET do, however, have a news report <http://news.cnet.com/news/0-1005-200-7733161.html> on the release. ZDNet have the same article <http://www.zdnet.com/zdnn…ws/0,4586,2821471,00.html> (actually I think the article was originally a ZDNet one) only with reader comments and a different headline (apparently, releasing software that's compatible with Microsoft's latest OS is "jump[ing] on the Windows XP publicity bandwagon").
