Netscape 7.0 Final News and Reviews

Saturday August 31st, 2002

Though Netscape releases no longer get the coverage that they used to, the launch of Netscape 7.0 was reported in several places on the Web. Articles can be found at AOL Time Warner, BBC News, CNET News.com, Geek.com, HindustanTimes.com, Internet Magazine, internetnews.com, Internet Week, MacCentral, MacSlash, NewsFactor, PCWorld.com, Reuters, Slashdot, The Register, Yahoo! Finance and ZDNet News.

Both CNET and eWEEK have reviews of Netscape 7.0 while TechTV features an editorial. If you're after user opinions, Download.com has a wide selection.

UPDATE! PC Magazine gave Netscape 7.0 four out of five, calling it "a sleek, fast, friendly browser that may make you consider switching from Microsoft Internet Explorer as your default browsing tool."

Finally, here's the solution to the biggest complaint about Netscape 7.0.

you really want to know, what I see there...? Oh, better not..

1. the small images have an alt=""-Text, which contains some info, for what this button is good - appears as a tooltipp on MSIE and NN4, no info on Mozilla -> on this point a Netscape page is optimised against Netscape (!) 2. I see GIF images, which display everywhere the same, bot no PNG images, which are THAT argument for Mozilla all over 3. on that very long CSS rule list (somebody haven't understood the "C" in CSS or?), I can't find a single rule, which doesn't work on MSIE. I duno, if the Drag&Drop works on MSIE, but everything else works there as good or better. THIS page is more an argument not to use Mozilla, "because it can't show tooltipps on images"!
