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.

The browser wrt AOL revenue is buried way down in some execs business plan. I guess the simplest way to look at it is that they want to reduce reliance on MS by having an alternative and be able to plant icons on people's desktops to drive eyeballs to their website (where they do make revenue). Profit? That's another matter...
