Reuters: Netscape comes out swinging with new browser

“America Online Inc. on Wednesday unveiled the first
major upgrade of the Netscape browser software in years and
said it would be willing to use it in its online services if
the Federal anti-trust case against Microsoft Corp. cleared the
way.”

“‘If the little matter with Microsoft is resolved and we were
allowed to carry the browser of choice, we’d use the Gecko
technology,’ said Barry Schuler, president of interactive services
for AOL, which bought Netscape last year.”

“The faster and smaller so-called “Gecko” technology is the core
of Netscape 6, the latest version of the Web-browsing
software.”
