Netscape today released a new version of its Mozilla-based browser. Netscape 6.2.3 is a minor update that fixes the recently discovered XMLHttpRequest security vulnerability. Like the other Netscape 6.2 releases, this latest version is based on the Mozilla 0.9.4 branch. You can download the release from Netscape's web site or FTP server.

I do not think anybody gets excited about Netscape upgrades anymore. All of my attempts to get friends to use Mozilla failed due to crashing or its appearance. I think I finally have a chance to get one person to use it because he has two new favorite sites whose big annoyances are popup ads. I am very concerned about these release candidates because they have numbers. That creates the possibility that the Mozilla project will reach RC50 and still be incomplete. I think it was bad to change the name to "release candidate" in order to gain temporary publicity. That will lessen the appeal of an actual release candidate.
