Netscape 7.0 Released
Wednesday August 28th, 2002
Netscape Communications Corporation today launched the final version of Netscape 7.0. This latest release is based on Mozilla 1.0.1, making it the first Netscape browser to be built upon post-1.0 code. The new version boasts several enhancements over the 0.9.4-based Netscape 6.2, including tabbed browsing, the ability to save complete web pages, print preview, site icons (Favicons), a download manager, full screen mode (Windows only), Quick Search within Mail & Newsgroups and Address Book, return receipts, mail labels, S/MIME mail encryption, CSS support in Composer and one-click web page publishing.
Netscape 7.0 also has several features not found in Mozilla. These include the ability to access Netscape Webmail and AOL accounts directly from within Mail & Newsgroups, a button to easily toggle the display of My Sidebar in Navigator and P3P support for automated cookie handling. Improved instant messaging features — including file transfers, Buddy Alerts and Buddy Icons — are provided by AOL Instant Messenger for Netscape and ICQ for Netscape. There's also a round throbber with a cool animation.

Ok. This is a clear answer. So, also on Gecko - the rendering engine is developed in two different branches.
I don't have have NS7 (I'm using Moz1.1 and stick with Moz probably). Does it report the same string as Moz 1.0.1, like
Mozilla/5.0 (<your OS and language> rv:1.0.1) Gecko/20020823 instead of some NS7 version/id ?
Wouldn't it be better giving Gecko - as the most important part of Moz - a more meaningful version stamp ?
With kind regards, Harald Henkel
