Does anyone remember the big browser battle between Microsoft and Netscape in the late 90s through in to 2000? Seems like a long time ago now and most people won't even realise that Netscape were the biggest web browser developer only a few years ago. They lost their way somewhat (in the browser market) and asked a third-party developer team to work on Netscape 8. It was ok, but was never going to rival Firefox, Opera or Internet Explorer 7.
Netscape Navigator 9 is the first public preview of the forthcoming web browser, based around Mozilla Firefox. It does have a few features of it's own, such as URL correction, so it's worth checking out. As it's based on Firefox, it will enable you to use your favourite extensions, add-ons and more.
