Betanews schrijft dat zij een onofficiŽle versie van Netscape 6 Preview Release 1 op de Netscape FTP site hebben ontdekt. De 16Meg grote setup file wordt daar stiekempjes gehost en is niet bedoeld voor publieke release:
Netscape 6 is the next generation browser from Netscape Communications, based on the work of Mozilla.org. In development for two years, many Netscape followers have tracked the browser's progress and are quite anxious to see the final product. After the decision was made to re-write the browser from the ground up, Netscape began to receive pressure from the Internet community due to delays in beginning development anew. The first Preview Release of version 6 comes complete with a new installer, Netscape messenger (an AIM clone), Net2Phone, a new HTML engine, Sun's Java2, and a spell checker.
De onofficiŽle preview release kun je downloaden via EFront's FileForum.
