Netscape 7.2 Release Set for August 3rd?

Wednesday July 28th, 2004

Slashdot is reporting that AOL will release Netscape 7.2 on August 3rd, citing the shipping date for the CDs as evidence. While this date is probably a good guideline, it is worth noting that past shipping dates for CDs have not always exactly coincided with the dates new releases have been made available for download. Furthermore, the recent Mozilla security holes may force the date back. Netscape 7.2 is expected to be based on Mozilla 1.7.

So every time someone says a discouraging word, it's trolling?? I'm not calling anyone names - no ad hominem here. Nor am I trying to start an argument or a flame war. It's just that my experiences with later versions of Netscape have been negative in the extreme, and that isn't even counting what it took for me to completely get it off my hard drive and out of my registry (too long a story).

Ok, the slamming of AOL Chat was a bit over the top. But I don't think me recounting my experiences with this poor relation of Mozilla/Firefox makes me a troll. It seems like the term "troll" is bandied about and attributed by anyone to anyone who isn't blowing sunshine.

I'll be more careful with my posts if you not be so loose in your use of words like "troll."
