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.

It is also possible that the web designer did not want any tool tips at all and that is why there are no title attributes. It is hard to determine what the web designer intended in this case. If the web designer intended for the alt attribute to be a tool tip on the netscape.com website then he/she should be severely reprimanded or perhaps fired.
