"Netscape 6 Preview Release 3 (NS6-PR3) is a much-needed
improvement over the now old NS 4.x products. It also is an
improvement over the first two Netscape 6 (NS 6) preview releases.

Sidebar and a rebuilt Composer. However, as with the first two NS 6
preview releases, NS6-PR3 is still buggy and crash prone --

6.0 for the Linux, Mac and Windows platforms on October 4, 2000.
That should be the last of the NS 6 preview releases. The RTM
(release to manufacturers) version of NS 6.0 is expected by the end
of 2000. NS 6 is the first new Netscape browser suite produced by
Netscape's current owner, AOL."
"NS6-PR3, as its predecessors PR1 and PR2, is not yet ready
for prime time. PR1 and PR2 were strikes, and PR3 makes it three
strikes in a row. More about the new, the improved, the buggy,
the bloat and the bad later. The underlying problem here is that,
so far, AOL/Netscape is pushing product to public show and tell and
to market before the product is ready, quality-wise."
