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.

From what I have seen on various Mac boards, the people complaining and suggesting that Netscape stop making a Netscape browser are ignorant morons.

Some have said things like "Netscape has taken years to make a halfway usable browser when Chimera was created in only a few months. Netscape and Mozilla suck. Chimera rocks. Netscape and Mozilla should just give up."

Others are saying it is slow and ugly Netscape 7 is then they admit that they have not even bothered to downloaded it.

Unfortunately it is illegal to kill these people.
