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.
OMG! I don't believe it.
Netscape was one of the 'major vendors' planning a release on 1.4. What else were they going to do? Release from 1.3? (I'm sure we'd know about that by now) Wait for 1.5 to become stable again? No.
Sorry to be sarcastic, but it isn't really news. When I saw the article I thought for a second that I was on theregister.co.uk (which I read at the same time) and thought to myself 'it took them a while to pick up on that'. Then I noticed the mozine design.
