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.

I have been using Firefox and Thunderbird for only a few weeks having converted from IE & Outlook because of the recent security scares and now feel much more secure. These appear to be excellent products. If that is the case they can stand alone and do not need to have supporters denigrate competitors in such intemperate and extreme terms. Some of the above posts give the impression that to be a Mozilla fan one must be a semi-literate geek loner. A little moderation would be welcome.
