About Netscape 9
Netscape 9 with sidebar open
Netscape 9
Netscape 9
was announced on 24th January 2007.

Netscape 9 will be a standalone browser, and from this screenshot, you can infer several things: unlike Netscape 8, Netscape 9 will contain support for newsfeeds (a.k.a. Live Bookmarks); it will also have tight integration with the Netscape.com service, as evidenced by the icons for the two available Netscape.com extensions (Friends' Activity Sidebar and the Sitemail Notifier). Several Netscape.com-based extensions will be built into the browser; only these two have been previously announced.

From the screenshot, it shows social bookmarking, voting, commenting, friends activity, and site mail built into the browser.


SillyDog701 member macallan1824 suggested that:
that the screen shot, probably inadvertently, reveals that NS9 is based on at least FF 2.0 .
In FF 2.0 the 'Go' main menu entry was changed to History....... (File Edit View Go)

Additional news has been announced in The Netscape Blog: unlike Netscape 8 which only runs on Windows, Netscape 9 will run on Mac and Linux platforms in addition to Windows platform. (MozInfo701)
Netscape 9 will also have an improved interface for FTP browsing.
NS9 FTP page

Features of Netscape 9:
Since Netscape 9 is based on Firefox 2, Netscape 9 will be able to run most Firefox 2 Extensions directly. (Netscape 9 will support Firefox 2.0 Extensions)
Netscape 9 will also be able to auto-correct the mis-typed URL in location bar, sucn as correcting sillydog.orrg to sillydog.org (Netscape 9's (new) feature)
Netscape 9's sidebar will give you browsing ability. There will be a navigation menu, address bar, and link target toggle. (Netscape 9's sidebar gets more control)

Downloading Help
Most recent versions of Netscape are quite large and would take a long time to download, however the connection might not be perfect at all times. My personal recommendation is using a downloading manager for all your downloads especially those large files, like Go!Zilla for Windows 9x/NT, Monica for Macintosh, Caitoo for Linux.
