Alternatives to Netscape 6 Preview Announced

A number of people we know are hoping that Netscape releases a new browser that is competitive with Microsoft Internet Explorer. Generally, these people have been disappointed by the preview releases of Netscape Version 6. However, today Slashdot mentioned two new browsers that are based on the Gekko Project-- the OpenSource project upon which Netscape Version 6 is based.

Kmeleon is a Windows browser based on Gekko. It is compared by its developer to Galeon, a Gekko-based browser for the GNOME environment on Linux.

These browsers may represent usable alternatives to Netscape 6 Preview 2, although they probably won't fully replace Netscape Communicator 4.7 for people who use it to read their mail.
