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.

Before Mozilla reaches 0.9x it was fun to follow Mozilla development to try out the latest and greatest builds, but since then the code base has matured, and it just wasn't as fun using in-development browsers that are like moving target. I settled with Netscape 7 and has enjoyed its stability since.
