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.

I don't like it either. But imho it is a small price to pay for AOL's support of the mozilla project. Without their support Mozilla 1.0 would have probably taken another 4 years to complete (if it survived at all)

A bigger problem in my mind is that annoying registration/activation screen. I've found it often keeps reappearing if I don't register even though it shouldn't. Thankfully I found a way to turn this off on this site: <http://www.hmetzger.de/net6e.html>
