Netscape 8 released

Get Netscape 8 BannerApparently the latest version of the Netscape browser, version 8, was released thursday. I don’t know if it’s any good. It has the ability to show webpages like IE or Mozilla Firefox does. Whichever you prefer. So when you get stuck on a page you can switch to ‘IE’.

I think I’ll just stick to my Firefox, because Netscape 8 is based on version 1.0.3 of Firefox. You know, the one with the big security exploit.

Update: Netscape got wise and released a new version (8.0.1) within 24 hours of initial release. Apparently they forgot to squash some 44 bugs. But this time around they’ve got “all Firefox security patches up to 1.0.4”. Shall I wait another 24 hours before trying myself? 😉
