is now precisely one year old. In about three weeks from now, it'll be exactly a full 12 months
since the news of the apparent "demise" of Netscape as a maker of web browsers.
Yet now, we're waiting to see when Netscape 7.2 will be released, based upon Mozilla 1.7 which
itself was officially released only just over a week ago. Since both Netscape 7.1 amd Mozilla 1.4
were both released literally hours apart, with Netscape first and Mozilla later, then given the fact
that all they need to do is rebrand a copy of Mozilla 1.7 with the Netscape identity, and add all
the usual proprietary add-ons (AOL/ICQ Messenger, Netscape Webmail support . . . ) all of
which could be done within the space of one working day, by one or two AOL staffers,
surely AOL could've had Netscape 7.2 done and dusted, and ready to before now . . .
I wish they'd hurry up, before we all start to lose interest. Some people probably already have!
