There's a "Desktop Search" feature listed under the Tools menu. The About box says "Desktop Search functionality provided by Copernic Technologies Inc". So maybe they mean <this product>. However clicking on Desktop Search produced... nothing, as did hitting the feature's hotkey: CTRL-Shift-K.
The spyware scanner showed eMule, VNC server and VNC viewer (which I
installed myself) among the list of "spyware". Sorry, but those are not.
These are legitimate applications that I installed myself.
No Mac OS X, - much less Linux - version: One would think that with MS
halting development of IE for Mac, Netscape would use this opportunity
to lure some users to their offering. No such 'revolutionary' thoughts
allowed at AOL's management positions, it seems.
If you choose to install "Rhapsody" from Real Networks, the installer
advises you that it needs (get this) 380MB of hard disk space.
Sheesh, good, full-blown 32-bit operating systems like OS/2 Warp
managed to fit on less space!. Thank the heavens it's OPTIONAL.
The program tries to force the user into the user interface. As if
the Microsoft Office "Animated Paper Clip" fiasco wasn't enough!.
You type "google.com" and a large balloon box pops up telling
you - in more polite terms, of course - "hey stupid, there's a
search box right here". Well, it happens to me that I like
typing www.google.com. GO AWAY, you ugly "asistant"!.
I think Netscape 8.1 is an evolution of the path started with 8.0.
A path that seems to target "dumb and dumber" internet users that
are scared to death to surf the interweb and who have little knowledge.
This is very different from the core user base that Netscape 7.x enjoyed.
AOL/Netscape would have a surprise if they resurrect the 7.x series,
updating it and basing it on the new "SeaMonkey 1.0" internet
suite, which is Mozilla's successor.
A certain manager once hinted about the possibility of resurrecting
the Netscape 7.x line. Well, with SeaMonkey 1.0 already in beta,
what a better time to please the "power users" than starting now?.
