Netscape 7.0 Preview Release 1 Report

Netscape 7.0 (final) Streamline available now. We recommend getting the newer versions.

(if you want to download Netscape 7.0 PR1 Stripped-down package, please read and download from bottom of this page.)


All right, here is my Netscape 7.0 PR1 report

General:
* The dialogue windows do not have short cut keys. (Such as the under lines in Yes, No, so you can use keyboards instead of mouse to click it.
* Problem with RealPlayer.

Browser:
* feels better, not sure if faster.
* the website icon (favourite icon) is quite cool, might make one for Silly Dog 701.
* Open links in New Tab? Why? still don't see the usefulness in "New Tab" compared to "New window".
* Comes with Java2 ver1.4.0_01I
* Comes with Flash 6.
* Print Preview, finally the must have function, but not entirely true; also shrink to fit page width feature (does not work very well yet).
* Page setup is in inches, can't be changed to metric.
* Save page feature is now improved, just like IE's, you can save complete webpage (with gif/js/css not just HTML)
* Full Screen Mode (F11) is interesting. (Now I know the benefit of Tab, it works under Full Screen Mode.)
* Keywords for bookmarks (can be used for locationbar), cool. See here for more detail about keywords.

Mail:
* Improved Mail notification (but no sound).
* Mail labelling function, you can set importance by difference colour.
* Security support, yoo-hoo! (I've been waiting for years)
* Imporved: Mail can now show all header.
* Improved Address Book.
* the handling of Netscape WebMail does not seem to be improved.
* The Netscape 7.0 PR1 Mail does not seem to automatically check for new e-mails, unless I keep the Mail window open. It won't check when the the Mail window is closed.
* Still not very smoothly integrated with Netscape WebMail.
* Problem: they moved the Message Filter out of Edit Menu to Advanced Features under your root mail.
* Problem: Clicking a link in email does not work with "Open Link in New Window" (context click); it works with just click it.
* Problem: I can't get any mail notification sound.
