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.

For years, Netscape has made the web browsing experience comfortable with its very handsome hand-shaped pointer for clicking on links. Mozilla can use whatever gesture its wants to, but Netscape loses its dignity for utilizing IE's less shapely, and some people would say obscene, pointer.
