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.

Proper testing takes a long time. Try it sometime...

Consider how long it takes to ship a "stable" mozilla milestone (about a month of testing) and realize that Netscape releases get much more thorough testing... (not to mention having to do localizations etc all _before_ the release, unlike Mozilla).
