Netscape has released the latest version of its Mozilla based browser on the Windows, Mac and Linux platforms.
Netscape 6.1 beta is only a minor upgrade of the browser, but sets a milestone for the project, which has been going on for nearly three years.
The company said the most noticeable improvements to this version are faster page loading, an improved cache, improved search facilities, enhanced bookmark management and URL auto-completion.
Almost an echo of Internet Explorer, Netscape now also sports a History section on the sidebar.
Users will also have the ability to pre-supply information for web-based forms, and Netscape is claiming to have beefed up the email client somewhat.
The release comes only a week after rumours surfaced that Netscape was pulling out of the browser business.
Company president Jim Bankoff was quoted as saying: "Six months from now, you won't consider Netscape to be a browser company." But apparently he only meant that Netscape was branching out into "other areas".
