AOL is delaying the release of its new Netscape browser to fix some last-minute bugs, the company has said. The beta version of Netscape 8 was due to be available tomorrow, but that date will slip by a week or two, an AOL spokesman said. An early version of the browser seen late last month continually crashed.
The new browser is designed to protect users from scams and malicious code while surfing the Web. It includes a feature that adjusts the browser security settings based on a list of known malicious websites to protect users from phishing scams. AOL is hoping to steal some of Internet Explorer market share by drawing attention to its poor security record.
