Based on the open source Mozilla project's latest release, this update features better popup blocking, vCard support, an improved junk mail algorithm, better standards support, performance enhancements, patches for recent security vulnerabilities and several hundred other bug fixes. Details are listed in the release notes.
The update reflects a change of mind by Netscape's owners, AOL. Just over a year ago it said that no further updates of the software were likely, reassigned its remaining developers and withdrew from the day-to-day running of the Mozilla Organisation.
Netscape 7.2 is a free download (also available on CD) from channels.netscape.com/ns/browsers.
