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!

Having Navigator go to <http://www.word.com> if it exists on typing "word" but otherwise look it up from the directory would be opening a veritable can of worms... All such words are either already taken, or would end up getting taken quickly by enterprising web-advertisers for their site, whether or not their site even had anything to do with the keyword in question. Thus I'm wondering, how much extra trouble would it be - for Netscape and for the users - if the dorectory-page would list links to all registered domain-named of www.word.* or the like at top of the reply?
