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.

When Microsoft do stuff like this everyone starts to complain. But it's ok when AOL does it ??? I live in Sweden and we don't have any use of AOL... We have something called Telia.. that's enough for us :(

I guess the worst part with the "new" netscape are the dialogs about creating a AOL profile. Don't see that in Internet Explorer (for example MSN account), yet :) I haven't tested the new Netscape version but I guess they still have those tricky-to-skip-register-dialogs ?!
