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.

I'm probablly missing something but every time I upgrade NS I loose all the packages I previously installed; Venkman, DOMInspector, Calendar etc. So after each upgrade I have to hunt around for all the XPI packages (be nice if somebdoy put them all in one spot after each NS release). Is there something I don't know about.

Under Windows, I uninsall the old version of NS and install the new version in the same directory - I keep all my mail, passwords and stuff it's just all the additional packages that I loose.
