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.

They got completely roasted last time when the installer FORCED AIM on you if you wanted email and also put AOL icons all over. The installer does the same thing again regarding AIM&ICQ. I'm not sure about the icons part, but I'm not going to install it to find out. They pissed off ever reviewer and user off by doing it last time and they are doing it again. Again I ask what is wrong with them? This isn't a "value-add" its an annoyance. People HATE bundling, especially of AOLware.

Oh well, evolution takes care of those who don't learn from their past mistakes. Its just a shame since the browser Netscape is based on is so good.
