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.

Yes, I agree - corporate support was good in the 4.x times. Unfortunately, these times are long gone and it got worse with 6.x and 7.x. There are lot of bugs now open - even 4.x parity bugs - that would be important for corporate users to be fixed, but dont get much attention. One of the things that have been a nuisance for the corporate users I know is lack of movemail support and lack of secure POP support. The ridiculous result is that some of them still use NS 4.x!
