Netscape 7.0 Preview Release 1

Wednesday May 22nd, 2002

Netscape today unveiled Netscape 7.0 Preview Release 1, the first beta of its successor to Netscape 6. The preview is based on the recent Mozilla 1.0 RC2 build and features most of the enhancements that have been added to Mozilla since Netscape 6.2 was released, including tabbed browsing, print preview, the ability to save complete web pages, email return receipts, message labels and S/MIME support.

Netscape's proprietary components have also been improved. An enhanced Instant Messenger now supports file transfers, buddy icons and communication with ICQ users (though you cannot be signed on to both AIM and ICQ at the same time). Also new is Radio@Netscape, a streaming audio service powered by Spinner.

Netscape 7.0 Preview Release 1 is available from Netscape's web site or FTP server. Marketing spiel can be found at the Netscape 7.0 Info Center.

The XML+XSLT support is still, uh, flaky. I got the draft Mozilla 1.0 User FAQ, XML version <> (that link doesn't work in RC2, only in recent branch and trunk nightlies) to induce a topcrash reliably. Great stuff!

And the Composer gave me four crashes in four days, 'cos it's flaky too.

But before these crashes, Mozilla hadn't crashed at random (i.e., not on a test case) for weeks.
