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 22.214.171.124". However, the subsequent 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206 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.
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.

"I dont see where the mozilla community has been embarrassed by Netscape."
Maybe the fact that they take ages to update their browser, and when they finally do, it's not up-to-date in regards to the latest security updates?
