Netscape Communications Corp.
has released a new version of its Web browser, Netscape 6.2. The new version incorporates many improvements and bug fixes, and is better optimized than previous releases for Mac OS X.
Netscape noted that the new release of Netscape for Mac OS X is a “real release,” as opposed to a preview, like the 6.1 version. It’s a bundled/packaged application.
Performance has been greatly improved on dual CPU-based Macs, and the software no longer excessively occupies CPU time after opening mail or news windows. Various bugs have also been corrected, crashing problems have been fixed, LDAP works, the integrated AIM client is now functioning, and various other modifications and fixes have been implemented.
Netscape 6.2 works on Mac OS 8.6 or later, including Mac OS X. System requirements call for a Mac equipped with a PowerPC 604e/266MHz processor or faster; 64MB RAM; 36MB available hard disk space.
