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.

no.

1. Mozilla has to stay as it is. 2. Web Developers who do not want a tooltipp should add an empty title="" for now (instead of leaving the alt"" away and so breaking the spec), until MS fixes this bug and add an alt="" with a replacement text to _every_ image and an empty alt="" to "useless" images. 3. pages which want a tooltipp have to write this into the title="". 4. in this specific case the text makes sense as both, as it's a good short descripting and a good tooltipp text, it should be added for alt="" (where it is) _AND_ title="".
