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.

What a bunch of anti-Netscape morons. Go back to your gnu prayers, opensource talibans. If there were no Netscape and their paid engineers and programmers, mozilla and netscape 7 wouldn't be what it is today.

The 30meg size is for the stand-alone, offline installer that you can burn to cd, put on a shared lan server, etc. It is 30mb or more because it contains EVERYTHING. The end user can then decide what he wants installed or not, but the ARCHIVE contains all components, including:

-Sun Java2 runtime -Real Player 8 basic -Wiamp 2.80 (windows) -Netscape Net2Phone

So, dumbass, the browser is not 30 mb. The browser is the same size of mozilla 1.0rc2 (in fact it is the same code with the addition of netscape code like the aim/icq sidebar, commercial spell checker, themes.

I see that some people in here carries a hatchet day and night, just in case they run into something from netscape. These mozilla fanatics can kiss my ass.
