Netscape 9 Beta 1 Released

Back in February, I posted: Netscape 9 Announced. Now, four months later Netscape Navigator Beta 1 has been release. Yes, they have resurrected the Navigator name in this version. Remember, Netscape 9 is built by AOL/Time Warner (not affiliated with Mozilla) off the Mozilla Fx 2 rendering engine (Gecko 1.8). You could almost call Netscape 9 a “power user’s” version of Fx 2. Besides the standard, Session Management, Spell Check, etc. it also has many other standard features which would require extensions in Fx 2: Resizeable Textarea – allows you to make a textarea larger or smaller URL Correction –…

More Blog Changes & FileZilla

Thanks to everyone who has commented about the new theme and layout. Based on these comments I have made a couple more tweaks. The old ‘Featured Links’ section use to have ‘buttons’ for all the browsers and some of the blogs. People commented those did not look so great with the rest of the blog. Well, I have to agree the ‘buttons’ were all different sizes and just too big. I have removed all the linked images. Also recategorized the ‘Featured Links’ into either ‘Blogs’ or ‘Internet & Browsers’. I have also added a link to FileZilla, a fast and…
