Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers
"Preview release (PR2) of Netscape 6.0 is a feature-complete
version that includes contributions from the open source
"The goal of Preview Release 1 was to make sure everyone knew
this product was coming and Netscape was still a viable browser.
Was it a success? Absolutely," said Chris Nalls, senior product
manager with Netscape, a subsidiary of America Online in Mountain
View, California. Nalls said the feedback the company receive
"enabled us to complete the feature set and start out work on
stability and performance."
"Netscape decided to build version 6 of its browser around a new
rendering engine code-named Gecko that would include contributions
from open-source developers, but the switch has stalled the
release. Nalls said the Gecko engine is now nearly complete.
Netscape will continue to update Gecko using contributions from the
open-source community, Nalls said."
"The open source effort has been incredibly successful
because of the help we've gotten, both through development by
testing and through documentation. They've often jumped in and
fixed the problem themselves," said Nalls."
