Communicator to Ship with Mac OS X

Thursday July 8th, 1999

Waldo has this great news for Macintosh Mozilla users. Waldo writes, "According to MacOSRumors, 'OS X is expected to ship with at least one Web browser (Internet Explorer if Microsoft ports it, Communicator 5 for certain, as well as a trial version of OmniWeb 3.0 quite likely)'.

Cool! Mozilla shipping w/every new Mac 'for certain'. I like it!"

That's not quite right. Both Navigator and IE are installed by default. What "default browser" means is that, when a user clicks the "Browse the Internet" or "Mail" icons on the Macintosh desktop, Internet Explorer and Outlook Express launch, respectively, instead of Navigator. Of course, a user may very easily change this at any time via the Internet control panel, and with Mozilla, they'll have very good reasons to do so.
