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?

I don't use the What's Related button, mostly because it does not ussually return very good sites.

I do, however, use the My Netscape button very often. I have all my main bookmarked sites stored under it, as well as my favorite search engines there to. So instead of roaming through the bookmarks, I just click My Netscape. Much quicker.

Finally, I don't use the search button (see above) but many people that are new to the internet do.
