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.

Netscape 7.0 can be downloaded from Netscape's web site or FTP server. More details can be found at Netscape Browser Central or in the Release Notes.

imagine it says gecko 1.0.1 and gecko 1.1 if the mozilla part confuses you. all the pieces are tied together. mozilla isn't a collection of independent works (at least from what I understand). thing of any project like this. if GNOME 1.4.2 came out, it wouldn't use the lastest gtk2, it would use the latest from the gtk1.2 line. I think mozilla is closer to that than whatever idea you're saying. if you know anything about mozilla this is obvious. it's one piece of software, not many (which I sometimes think is a shame).
