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.

Is there any reason why they are not using 1.2.1, or at least 1.1. I don't even see a Mozilla 1.0.2 on FTP.

I will probably download it since I have it set up for my Mom. Already have pop-up blocker installed, but I am sure there must be bug fixes and performance enhancements.
