Netscape yesterday announced the availability of version 7.0 of its Internet browser. The release, which follows the announcement of Mozilla 1.1 for a few days, promises interesting news. According to a press release, the new version of the browser, as well as news in fact of functionality, it has a more efficient engine that guarantees better speed in rendering pages.
The news is particularly interesting given that one of the most frequent complaints of Mac users (and site developers) that the performance of surfers on the Apple platform is often much lower than that of the corresponding products on the PC platform.
The fact that Netscape, already one of the fastest (if not the fastest) browsers on Mac O X, is today even more responsive, certainly an excellent viaticum for its adoption.
In addition to the higher speed, Netscape, again according to the manufacturer, has a simplified navigation system that allows you to keep multiple pages "swapping" between them by means of labels and a new Netscape Mail. Also interesting is the possibility of carrying out Internet searches on a particular word, highlighting it simply in a text and holding down the mouse button.
The announcement of Netscape 7.0 (compatible with Mac OS 8.6 and later) takes place a few days after the news, also reported by Macity, according to which the use of the navigator dropped to a historic low of 3.6%
