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'll probably order the CD but not the book. I bought the CD/book package of 7.0 mostly to send them some more money to encourage their continued support, but the book was terrible. It's chock full of "clicking FOO causes FOO to happen" and "click MUMBLE and follow the on-screen instructions". I was hoping that *somewhere* in all that paper it would tell me something that I wouldn't have assumed anyway in under a millisecond.
