"As Netscape Communications weathers heavy criticism that it
released its latest browser prematurely, competition is heating
"Both Opera Software, a Norwegian browser maker, and NeoPlanet,
a contributor to Netscape's Mozilla open-source development group,
are making aggressive moves just as many see America Online
subsidiary Netscape in a newly vulnerable position."
"NeoPlanet chief executive Drew Cohen said Wednesday that his
company plans to release a Mozilla-based browser in February that
will compete with Netscape's newest browser, which was also built
on Mozilla code."
"Cohen drew a sharp competitive line between the two products,
calling the recent release of Netscape 6 "premature" and raising
concerns that such a release could give Mozilla "a bad name."
