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.

Remember that they've used the 1.0 branch for more than a year, so assuming they do the same with the 1.4 branch, you're asking what they're going to do in late 2004. I'm not sure they even know what they're going to do that far ahead... I guess it rather depends what happens with Mozilla, what happens with Netscape 7.5 or 8 or whatever, and what happens with the rest of AOL stuff.
