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.

This is really pissing me off. And I'm not one to ususally get upset. I had the same problem as this guy. I looked at the Known Problems in NS7PR1 Release Notes and all it said was something about changing the locale to en_US. It noted this as a "workaround", but gave no directions as to how to go about doing it! Great work guys. After hearing everyone rave about NS7 I thought I might give it a try... well *#^$, I guess i'll be sticking to Mozilla...unless someone tells me how to work aroung this GLARING bug. ARRRRRRRGGGGGGGGGGGGGG. I mean, come on...I expected much more.
