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.

Sell it? Nope, you iss the part about having a corporation backing up a product. Since IE is free and comes with the monopoly OS, there is no way they can sell it. Sun can sell the office suite because MS Office is not given away for free. Companies were not considering it because they were afraid of a product being given away by a major company with little incentive to keep developing and SUPPORTING it. If Nestcape fails, companies can still go back to IE (or Opera) and can still assign liability to the provider. And with Open Office or Mozilla, who will you sue. Same applies to Linux, companies pay to get it from Red Hat or Suse, etc not because they want to pay for it but because they have a company to make responsible in case something goes awfully wrong.
