New Netscape 7.01 browser can eliminate pop-up ads

AOL Time Warner Inc. (AOLTW) subsidiary Netscape Communications Corp. has made the newest version of its Web browser, Netscape 7.01, which includes pop-up ad blocking capabilities, available for download from its Web site.

Netscape 7.01 can be configured so as to prevent the appearance of pop-up ads on a user's computer screen and also includes AOL e-mail features allowing users to unsend mail, check message status, and keep messages marked as new, Netscape said on its Web site.

Additionally, the latest version of the Netscape browser features "minor stability and performance enhancements," as well as giving users the ability to view several tabbed pages as that user's home page, Netscape said.

Netscape 7.01 runs with Windows, Mac and Linux operating systems, the company said.

Netscape already included a similar pop-up blocker as part of its Mozilla browser. The Mozilla development project, mozilla.org, is an open source program, which supplies a free Web browser with the same name. Selected features in Mozilla are included in the latest Netscape browser.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
