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.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
