Netscape Navigator 9.0 (Beta 1) – Features, Requirements and Screenshot Tour

Netscape recently released version 9.0 (beta 1) of its popular’ish Navigator web browser. Though Netscape has been trailing badly in the ‘browser war’, their latest version may compete with Firefox, Safari and IE. Keep reading for screenshots, features, requirements etc.

Some of the more interesting features include:

URL Correction
Navigator 9 will automatically correct common typos in URLs. For example, if you accidentally type googlecom, Navigator will fix it be to google.com. The browser will watch for nearly 30 different types of common mistakes and correct them for you (asking you to confirm, if you choose to enable confirmation).

Link Pad
The Link Pad is a new sidebar feature that allows you to save links/URLs that you want to visit later without cluttering your bookmarks. Just drag a link over the Link Pad status bar icon and drop it to save it in the Link Pad. By default, clicking on an item in the Link Pad will open it in the browser and remove it from the list, saving you the step of deleting it.

Extension Compatibility
Navigator 9 shares an architecture with the latest Mozilla technologies; as such, Navigator 9 will let you install extensions that are compatible with Firefox 2.

System Requirements: Netscape Navigator 9 is currently available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux. For full system requirements, see http://browser.netscape.com/sysreqs/
