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.

You missed the point dude. Where is Netscape getting it's money? Opra gets money from actually SELLING their browser. There is a trial free version, but you have to pay to get rid of the banners. Most companies need to make money to survive.....Netscape gives its browser away for free. Hm...Maybe they get money through their web page? They don't sell much though, do they? And the banners don't give as much money as they used to as it sounds. hmm....
