Netscape has released its 3rd Preview of its long-awaited browser update. After months of waiting and scathing reviews in the recent past for its other Preview releases, this release appears to be generally well received judging by the discussion on Slashdot.org In the past, the discussion on Slashdot and other sites has been merciless in its criticism of Netscape and the open source group that writes its base: Mozilla.org. While not bug-free, this release is reassuring that the strategically important browser will fulfill its promise in the near future. Mozilla’s current roadmap calls for release in January or February of 2001. Nightly builds that are said to be steadily improving are available on Mozilla.org.
