Internationalization for "What's Related" - One Reader's Opinion

Saturday September 12th, 1998

Marcus Loane of Belfast writes in with a good question for the Mozilla/Netscape folk:

"The new features such as 'What's related' and 'My Netscape' are rather nice but at the moment they seem to be very US oriented. Are there any plans for these to be better tailored to the geographic location of the user? For example if I am looking at a UK TV guide, the related links are for US television. The keywords feature also has to be altered to suit location. If I type in BBC I want to see www.bbc.co.uk and not some Boston company's web site. Netscape has always been very good at supporting different languages so I hope it will continue to take the world view and not the US view."

Anyone at Netscape willing to tell us how they plan on dealing with these issues?

Thats a good question...But i have another thought.

Who clicks on the My Netscape button, What's Related, and search button? I mean no one i know uses the Search button...Everyone goes to their fav. search engine site and uses that.

I think one of the more innovated ways Netscape is going to integrate the browse into the web is with its 'roaming access' (I sent this idea in, not should if I was the first one, but who knows).

The search button has been thare since 4.0 first came out and i never clicked on it..Although i have used the What's Related feature a few times..
