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 get exactly the same thing. I think it is because Netscape is being foolish and looking in the .mozilla directory instead of the .netscape directory =/ You can't share profile information between different versions of a piece of software without headaches like this occuring.

If anyone finds a fix, post it here =) I would love to try out the AIM client.
