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.

Well it would make little sense to release a netscape branded thing based on firefox. The only significant difference between the mozilla suite and Netscape is the bnading and the integration of AIM replacing chatzilla. Do you really want a Firefox integrated with an AIM sidebar?
