Netscape Browser 8.1.3 Released

Thursday April 12th, 2007

A security update for the Mozilla Firefox-based Netscape Browser 8 has been released. Netscape Browser 8.1.3 includes a variety of security fixes, with the Netscape Browser Security Alerts page stating that the release "includes Firefox security patches up through". However, the subsequent, and updates to Firefox all include security fixes (details on the Mozilla Foundation Security Advisories page) so it appears that this latest Netscape release has known security flaws.

The official Netscape Blog has an announcement about Netscape Browser 8.1.3, which recommends uninstalling any existing versions before updating (profile data will not be lost).

Netscape Browser 8.1.3 can be obtained from the Netscape Browser download page. An upgrade can also be initiated from within the Browser Update section of the Security Center component of the browser. There are a few more details in the Netscape Browser 8.1.3 Release Notes.

Earlier this year, Netscape announced that they are working on version 9 of the veteran browser.

"You don't really think any of those companies freely load that "TRY AOL NOW!" icon on your desk for free do you? The default desktop is expensive real estate and community based projects have had an enormously hard time trying to crack it with OEM vendors."

BLEACH!!! That is the most disgusting argument against firefox i ve ever read. Treating the user as a billboard-screen and that way pushing all kinds of bloated bullshit down his throat. This business mentality - treating the user like shit without any respect - is the main cause for everything which is wrong in the internet AND computerworld today - spyware, bloatware, security nightmares, complicated sofware and turning the machine into the master and the user into the slave.

I leave it up to you to clean up the giant amount of puke you provoked with such an assine post.
