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.

Why isn't this "sophisticated pop-up blocker" not in 1.2.1? I always hear stuff about "cutting edge technology" in the latest Mozilla vs 1.0 (1.02 was claimed to be less stable <http://www.mozillazine.or…le=2707&message=29#29> ). Now Netscape has more stuff than in the latest Mozilla. Why not delete all the Mozilla releases and replace them with the Nescape releases; this way people will get more stable releases and more "cutting edge tech"!
