"Netscape fans can exhale; a beta release of Netscape 6 premieres next Tuesday at Internet World in Los Angeles...."

"Beyond real-time messaging and other Netcenter support, Netscape offers few details about Netscape 6 features. Nor is AOL saying whether this version will replace its browser. But Netscape is chattering about Gecko."

"Gecko is the first product from Netscape based on contributions from Mozilla, the organization managing Netscape's open source initiative. The Gecko engine renders graphics and text, and promises faster surfing. Its smaller size means browsers like Netscape 6 will download quickly."

"Netscape 6 will be a 5.5MB download, says Eric Krock, senior product manager. Netscape 4 is a 15MB download, and IE 5.5 is a 29.4MB download for the full installation."
