Netscape 7.01 Released with Pop-up Blocker

Tuesday December 10th, 2002

Netscape has updated its flagship browser to version 7.01. This latest release is based on Mozilla 1.0.2 and combines several bug fixes with a couple of new features. The most notable of these is a sophisticated pop-up blocker (accessible from Edit > Preferences > Privacy & Security > Popup Window Controls). Also new in this release is an option to set a group of tabs as your home page.

Netscape 7.01 is available as a free download or on CD-ROM. More details can be found at Netscape Browser Central or in the updated Release Notes.

I think it is pretty lame that Netscape is only available for Win, Mac, and Linux. Mozilla shows that it is possible to build it for many other platforms and Opera makes its browser available for a dozen platforms (however on some platforms, only old versions). NS 4.x was available for fam more platforms. This is bad for corporate users, but NS was never particularily good to listen to the needs of corporate users (just browse bugzilla for bugs like APOP support etc.)
