NetscapeNetscape 6.01 aims to swat the bugs

 2:17 am on Feb 9, 2001 (gmt 0)

AOL Time Warner on Wednesday quietly released a minor upgrade to its Netscape 6.0 browser.

n a strange twist, AOL Time Warner faces potential competition from Netscape's open-source
browser project--that is, if the operation can ever get a browser out the door. Mozilla.org has labored
for about three years to deliver a next-generation browser, in an effort to demonstrate that
open-source programmers from different companies can collaborate to deliver a viable commercial

I just don't get it. Thoses guys harrassed all NN 4.X users to upgrade to 6 in a very agressive way. (pop-up or even worst, replacing your current page with the add, every time you read mail!)

The product is unusable. Now that they have an upgrade, they make it bearely impossible to grab?

Where is the logic? They make a huge campaign to push a product that is not ready to ship, and when the product is ready the campaign is'nt. I bet I will read more about it with Opera.

>The product is unusable.

Having spent years priding myself on not using any fat products pushed at the market by the Beast from Redmond, NS6 would have put us out of business.

We now used MSIE and Outlook.
Yes we feel a little dirty BUT we are still in business.
Goes to prove that it's all about $.

I like one thing about MSIE on my Macs, and that is I can trash it. ;)
