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.

So let me get this straight, Opera can make a browser (an you accept that as a business model) but Netscape should not make a browser because trhat is burning money? Netscape is still used by many companies and many of these companies will NOT use a browser that is not backed by an established corporation (just in case there is a liability issue). Sun is reporting that since they started selling Star Office 6.0 (instead of giving it away) the number of companies that have decided to use it has increased dramatically.
