New Netscape Browser Supports IE, Is Based On Firefox
Contributed by: G3nu1n3, at 12/02/2004 07:02:00 PM.

America Online today released a preview version of a new Netscape Web browser that is based on the open-source Firefox Web browser, but also supports Microsoft's Internet Explorer browser engine.

IE is part of Windows and is used by the great majority of Web users. Many Web sites have been designed specifically to work with the Microsoft browser and may not work correctly in browsers using other engines, including the Gecko engine in Firefox.

While current Firefox users may switch to IE when they have a problem with a Web site, AOL's Netscape unit found a different solution. If a Web site does not display well in the standard Firefox-based configuration in Netscape, it takes two clicks to display the page using the IE engine. The browser stores engine preferences per Web site.

The browser stores engine preferences per Web site.

The Netscape browser does not actually include the IE engine, but uses the engine that is part of Windows. As such, the browser works only on Windows computers.

Other Features

The new Netscape browser offers several other features, including some that give users a lot of control over browser security. For example, users can determine per Web site if pop-ups and cookies should be allowed and if the browser should run ActiveX controls (in IE mode), JavaScript, and Java.

AOL also enhanced support for RSS (Really Simple Syndication) feeds, which also exists in Firefox. The Netscape browser can display rotating headlines from RSS feeds in a special task bar. RSS feeds are an increasingly popular way to syndicate headlines and sometimes entire articles from Web sites.
