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.

Hi: I installed netscape 7 pr1 under windows xp (already installed mozilla 1.0 rc2). However, when i start navigator, a strange windows pop up "Netscape Screen Name", with a "Retrieving member information" message (?). Then the windows closes and no navigator windows is shown; i have to click again in Navigator icon and just then the windows appears. BUT, i cannot open a new browser window (CTRL + N, or another way). AND, when I try closing the navigator window, and exit the program, there is a task running in task manager (Netscp.exe) and i have to kill the process in order to open again navigator... and the problem starts again, the "Netscape Screen Name"... sigh

Any help?
