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.

Opera sells a browser, Netscape gives a browser away. Opera has many paying customers (both end users and companies). In short, Opera is generating revenue and Netscape isn't. The whole point of why a commercial company invests millions of dollars in a product that isn't generating any revenue escapes me. If on top of that they continue to ship the main competitors product (internet explorer) it becomes even more silly. That's what I call burning money.
