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.

"If you cared to be less ignorant::)" now that's a nice way to start up a conversation. Did we get up on the wrong side of the bed this morning sleepy?

Of course there is an installer, ect and who doesn't have Java already installed and a couple of AIMS that are still hanging around from this or that, just found that it would be nice if they offered a smaller download, I don't use browser installers, they tend to get a little pushy and forget that you said, no you are not the default for this and that. Sometimes they don't even asked. I used the 'auto-update' one time on a NS 4.7X and wound up having to reinstall my wife's Office program to get it back into running order. It took out the Mapi from EXCEL, Word and even blew the FAX program out. Since then no bite by bit installers thanks.
