Mozilla 1.4 and Netscape 7.1 News and Reviews
Sunday July 6th, 2003
It's almost a week since the double release of Mozilla 1.4 and Netscape 7.1. The new Netscape version came out first and it was reported on by Slashdot, LWN.net and Macworld UK. Mozilla 1.4 followed shortly after, leading to articles at Slashdot (again), Neowin.net, LWN.net (again), GnomeDesktop.org FootNotes and the Temple of the Screaming Penguin. As the two browsers came out on the same day, several sites — including ZDNet News, Techweb, The Mac Observer and OSNews — produced single reports for both releases. Meanwhile, CNET News.com and Ars Technica tied their stories in with Marc Andreessen's recent comments that browser innovation is dead.
Finally, for those who think that Mozilla 1.4 doesn't offer any real improvements, Asa Dotzler has a changelog. Thanks to everyone who sent us links to articles.

This idea comes up periodically, and you know what? It was originally done c. 1993! IBM WebExplorer, for OS/2 Warp v.3.0 (and maybe 2.1), did exactly that! I can't find screenshots, but Google on "WebExplorer WebMap". Too bad Blue hasn't released the code for that function to the Warpzilla team....
