Netscape in the News

Tuesday September 15th, 1998

George Giannukos writes in with a link to an article at News.com discussing the latest pre-release of Communicator 4.5.

George correctly points out that the reporters fail to mention that many of these new features can be disabled -- a lack of exculpatory evidence which leaves the story decidedly one-sided.

I'll leave it to you, dear reader, to draw any parallels to current events. Me? I'm keeping my mouth shut!

True Netscape should send people to <http://www.scripting.com> if they type scripting but the fact of the matter is the only people that effects are people who type just 'scripting' to goto <http://www.scripting.com>

Netscape isn't stealing readers? How would netscape stealing readers? What's happening is the people that just typed scripting are now going to have to type the full address. I see this more as a bug than Netscape being greedy, but thats just me...

email Netscape and tell them to fix this bug...

i have also noticed when i type 'news' in the location bar it takes me nowhare. So i have to type the full address (<http://www.news.com>) which becomes a pain...
