eWeek Ponders Significance of Netscape 7.2
Thursday May 27th, 2004
eWeek has a report about the forthcoming release of Netscape 7.2, which is expected to be based on Mozilla 1.7. Featuring comments from former Netscape employee Daniel Glazman, the article discusses how committed AOL is to continuing the development of Netscape and why they might be releasing a new version.
Update: Daniel Glazman has published the full text of his email interview with eWeek.
Finally we will have a packaged version of Mozilla that includes java and needed plug-ins again. And now I can upgrade some folks who are happily using Netscape 7.1 without shocking them with an application name change.
Hmm, will CDs and manuals be available again?
This will be good to have another browser name out there we can really talk about again. Mozilla rules but some people just don't get it. I don't see how anybody can even browse the net with MSIE any more, visit the wrong web site and *poof* spyware or worse automatically loaded.
