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.

I never had a problem with delivery of the CD's I've bought off them in the past, perhaps I've been lucky. So I think I'll go ahead and order it to support them.

I was looking at an unoffical test build on Netscape 7.1 <> (use at your own risk) and it had chatzilla included with it - that seemed odd, they'll probably remove it for the final version.

But first impressions with this release, it seems fairly good, not many changes from Mozilla, they seem to have left most of the good features from mozilla in, so it's a good end user release. As always some of the defaults are different, and it includes the ActiveX plugin on Win32.
