30 Mar, 2004

Hendikins brought us the Inquirer news of AOL: New Mozilla-based Netscape 7.x coming shocker

Finally, last week, [Fernando Cassia] almost fell off [his] chair when [he] received an official reply:

"I am writing you in response to your e-mail to [exec name here]. The next (Netscape Browser) version will be a "point" release based on the latest Mozilla code."

The message continued saying that this version "will be made available in the very early summer timeframe". For the record: this came straight from AOL's Corporate Communications department.

Now Netscape 7.1 users can rejoice in anticipation. And this is proof for those once skeptic readers who told me "why bother?" that there's some truth in a local [Ed: doesn't it exist up there??] saying which goes "don't complain (now), if you never complain". It's a rare event in this galaxy, and it doesn't happen too often... but sometimes, just sometimes, corporations do listen.

Let's keep our figure crossed.

SillyDog701's Netscape Browser Archive will keep you informed.
