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.
#54 I'm a bit disappointed with the response so far

All of those things you mention are either an optional install or can be deleted immediately after install. The only thing that even takes the slightest bit of thought is to install adblocker.xpi which is trivial. So what's the problem? I'm so tired of hearing that complaint. Widespread adoption of Netscape is a lot more likely than widespread adoption of Mozilla. Pleae remember that Netscape is NOT Mozilla's enemy.
