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.

Oh, what horror!!!! pre-defined icons in your personal toolbar.

What a bunch of morons and idiots. What do you expect, an EMPTY toolbar? Most users wont even have a clue that they can add their own stuff to that space if you just leave it empty.

And what's so hard about clicking and removing the icons??

Plus, as with all Netscape 6.x releases, I'm sure netscape will soon release their Client Customization Kit (CCK) so you can remove components at will, change splash screen/graphics if you wish so, customize the default toolbar, sidebar etc., and create your own Netscape distributions.

You sound pretty idiotic to me. Down to the Mozilla taliban aka netscape bashers!!!

My hat's off to the hard working netscape programmers and engineers.
