    Netscape 8.0

    America Online today launched Netscape Browser 8.0, the first major update to its flagship browser since Netscape 7.0 was released in 2002.

    Based on Mozilla Firefox, this latest release can render pages using either the Gecko or Internet Explorer layout engines. Other new features include Site Controls (per-site security settings), the MultiBar (a toolbar for personalised content), a new way of automatically filling in forms and a quick way of clearing private data like the browsing history.

    Unlike previous releases, Netscape Browser 8.0 is just a Web browser (no email application, newsgroups client or Web page editor), though it does include an integrated AOL Instant Messenger and ICQ client.

    As AOL laid off the Netscape browser development team in 2003, most of the programming work for version 8.0 was outsourced to Canadian firm Mercurial Communications.
