New Netscape


Talking of new browsers, the supposedly dead Netscape are releasing another one. It’s based on Firefox but tweaked around to be “Netscapey”. I don’t know why they’d bother but there is one interesting feature. There will be the option to switch between Gecko, Mozilla’s superior rendering engine, and Trident, IE’s engine. Basically they’ve embedded IE so there is a choice. Why anybody would want to use a Mozilla based browser and ruin it with IE is beyond me, but it might be interesting from a designing point of view. Of course, what are the odds there are particular quirks in the Netscape version not present in Firefox or IE :-/ Looks ugly too.
