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 just had a quick look under linux. The popup blocker is alot better than in moz.

has allow popups with exceptions or block with eceptions, plus playsound when suppressed and/or put icon in status bar when suppresed.

(also let me uncheck AIM and ICQ in the install even though I installed the email componant)
