Netscape Taking Orders for Netscape 7.1 on CD

Saturday June 28th, 2003

The Inquirer is reporting that Netscape has started taking orders for Netscape 7.1 on CD. The new Netscape browser is not yet available for download but the contents of the /pub/netscape7/english/7.1 directory on Netscape's FTP server were publicly accessible for a few hours earlier this week. The Netscape 7.1 CD order page lists prices of US$2.99 for a Netscape 7.1 CD and US$9.99 for a CD and guidebook, with those figures good until July 11th. Most of the links on Netscape's site still point to the older Netscape 7.0/7.02 CD order page.

Note: This is not a sales pitch on behalf of Netscape. This headline doesn't make clear is this is the 1.4 trunk of Mozilla and will include a host of new features. Also, its newsworthy because it illustrates that the Netscape organization has NOT quit working on the Netscape Browser. Apparently the browser wars are not over after AOL's <a href="<…/0,,t270-s2135387,00.html>">recent deal</a> with Microsoft

My contribution:

Hopefully this netscape will not be bloated with AOL extras and have a conspicuous lack of popup / javascript controls that made previous versions of Netscape 6 and above useless in comparison to the organzation's releases.
