Next Version of Netscape to be Based on Mozilla 1.4

Wednesday May 14th, 2003

T_Moz wrote in to tell us that the next Netscape browser release will be based on a branch of Mozilla 1.4. The news was confirmed by Netscape DevEdge in a story announcing the availability of Mozilla 1.4 Beta. Netscape's decision to base their next version on 1.4 has been widely anticipated, particularly since the new Mozilla Development Roadmap was unveiled last month.

"I seriously thought Netscape was dead.... they rarely update the browser... it almost seems like a joke."

Last major release of Netscape was in August 2002. When was the last major release of IE?

"Heres an idea: get a blank HTML page. at the top put a giant graphic "Netscape Software" then below that 'Netscape Navigtor'. In the middle of the page have three options 'about' - 'download' - 'support'. with some fancy graphics. And thats it- thats all they need."

You mean something a little like this?
