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.

Popup window control is in Netscape 7.01 by default? Well, it's about time AOL/Time Warner backed down. Of course, they didn't have a choice, did they? It's been widely knows that the popup window control they took out of Netscape 7.0 could be easily put back in by simply downloading & installing a small program, and that it was widely avaliable to everybody (Heh!! Heh!! Heh!!). I like this new multiple home page feature. Can't wait to install it & try it out.
