MozillaQuest Magazine: Netscape 6.1 PR 1 Browser Released

Looks like the wait for a competitive open source web browser is nearing its end. MozillaQuest Magazine has an article announcing that Netscape 6.1 Pre Release version 1 is now available and is based on the Mozilla 0.9.1 code base: ‘…Simply put, the Netscape Division grabs the Mozilla source code, adds its own and third party products such as Net2Phone and AIM, and then puts its own Netscape branding on the added-too and customized Mozilla-base. The Netscape Division also adds its portal and bookmark items to the Mozilla-base while customizing the underlying Mozilla browser suite. Stir all that together and voila, that’s the Netscape 6.x browser suite. All told, the Mozilla browser suite upon which Netscape 6.1 is based is a nice browser…’ The article has links to download sites for Linux, Mac and Windows.
