CNET Chimes In, States IRC Will Compete With Instant Messenger

Thursday September 9th, 1999's Paul Festa has an article regarding the new IRC and Jabber clients in development, and claims that the IRC will be "in direct competition with AOL's own messaging software", although it's not clear how that would happen. The article also states that Mozilla's beta will be occurring in 4 weeks, which is off by about a 3 to 4 weeks, according to a news post that came out today. There's still a lot of work to be done, but they are making good progress.

Thanks to Kovu for the news.

Here's a thought. Instead of integrated IRC or whatever into the browser how about making a download manager for Commincator5.

This could be very helpful. Allow people to pause, stop and finish it later, ect...

Also, now Ads like Netscape has down with SmartDownload.
