Netscape is working furiously to finish work on the Java-based version of its Navigator browser, codenamed Javagator, for launch within five months.
Speak at Sunsoft?s Inside Sun Software event, Netscape vice president John Paul said the product is scheduled for launch in the first quarter of 1998. "It is going to be a push but so far it is going well."
The product will be a 100 per cent pure Java version of Navigator, which Sun Microsystems and Netscape have touted as important to their aim to promote Java on computers for consumers and corporates alike.
"Netscape has three aims," Paul said. "We want to wire the enterprise, wire businesses together and wire our customers to their customers with ecommerce." He said Javagator is a crucial part of that push. "There has been a steep invention curve for Java. Now is the time to slow that down and ship products to market in volume."
