Netscape 6 Preview

Send Article to a Friend

Netscape 6 Preview -- Netscape Communications has released a preview version of Netscape 6, its forthcoming Internet application suite based in part on the open source Mozilla project - though we recommend it only for the most adventurous of Web users. Netscape 6 permits access to multiple email accounts (including AOL accounts) and boasts a customizable sidebar plus much-improved support for Internet standards like Cascading Style Sheets and XML. Netscape 6 doesn't resemble a Macintosh application - that could change with time - and demonstrates the results of Netscape's acquisition by AOL with near-frantic integration of specialized content and services. The Netscape 6 preview requires Mac OS 8.5 or better with at least a 200 MHz 604 processor; be prepared to allocate at least 25 MB of RAM to the behemoth. The active installer is less than 200K, while a standalone installer is about 10.6 MB. You might also check out recent discussions in TidBITS Talk of Netscape 6 and Mozilla 5. [GD]
