Netscape has stepped up its campaign against Microsoft by including instructions on how to uninstall MS Explorer when Web surfers request to download Netscape browsers.
Under an initiative called Customer Choice, Netscape has called on 35,000 of those Web sites offering options to download Netscape Navigator or Communicator, to include a Choose Netscape button. This will take users to a Netscape page, which will enable surfers to download its browsers as well as offering a step-by-step guide on how to uninstall Microsoft?s rival.
A Netscape spokesperson said: ?We?ve introduced the Customer Choice scheme in the light of the Department of Justice?s investigations into Microsoft. This is about offering customers choice which Microsoft is not doing.? The campaign will will last for at least six months.
Microsoft dismissed the scheme as Netscape taking aggressive action on the back of its expected fourth quarter losses (see yesterday's story).
