Netscape 7.01 has been released, and there’s a lot more to it than a one-hundredth version number increment would indicate. The new release includes popup controls, which let you globally block unrequested popups while defining a whitelist of sites where you accept popups; and a way to make a collection of Web sites your home page, with each one opened in its own tab. If you’re using Netscape, you should definitely grab this release. Netscape 7.0 had over 12 million downloads, and with these new features I’d bet the update will be even more popular.
At some point in recent weeks New Riders posted an interview with me, and I completely missed that fact until some time last night. Since it’s a publisher interview I spend a little more time than usual talking about why I write books at all, but it covers other ground as well, including advice for people starting to learn CSS and what I think about tables for layout.
