Just noticed something that appears to be ever so slightly amiss with the review of Netscape 7 on the Internet Week site, " . . . the new Netscape browser is a genuine milestone, the first Netscape-branded version of the open source Mozilla code that the company set free years ago." Errr, I don't know about you, but that's news to me. Just exactly which planet has the writer of that article been living on since April 2000, when Netscape 6.0 Preview Release 1 was released?
