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.

This is cool feature and it's better than mozilla. However, those icons are too close to the corner. The page security information is easy to bring up when brower is resized or scroll bars are click. This is one UI issue which I believe that it can be improved.

This other issue I suggest both Netscape and Mozilla add go button by the address, like IE. Maybe, there is a bug. I got a lot of chance that browser go nowhere even I enter valid address and hit ENTER.
