Netscape is out with a test release of version 8.0
, lending weight to the speculation that the browser will be attempting to make a comeback
. This new version, which differs greatly from its previous incarnations, tries to take on the best qualities of its two main rivals, IE and Firefox.
The new Netscape, which is only available for Windows PCs, addresses the quandary through a regularly updated list of "good" and "bad" sites.
If Netscape deems a site good, a green shield appears and the browser displays the site using the IE software engine that is built into Windows.
