Netscape 7.2 is out and it's better than ever!

Netscape 7.2 has just been released and I have to say this is the best browser ever! It's fast and all the bugs are fixed. Try it out and you'll never go back to your old browser.

I've been using Netscape 7.X for a long time now. Its faster response, tabbed interface, built-in popup blocker and lack of support for "browser helper objects" (the means by which those annoying adware toolbars are installed) have been most endearing.

Edit: And thanks to the original poster for letting us know that the latest version is available.

I just installed 7.2 over 7.1 and it looks like it deleted all my previous mail.

There goes 10 years worth of e-mail. I can't see anyway to get it back now. I'm rather depressed now. Especially since I'm an idiot and haven't backed up in a long time.

Is it really better than Mozilla/FireFox? I guess not.

Well probably not 10 years, but it's still bad enough. Ah well I did find a backup, but it's from last year so I lost all my e-mail from this year.

Have you looked at the help section?

Yeah, I checked out the help section. I couldn't find anything useful. I'm just going to chalk this up as a loss. I didn't have anything that important in my e-mail anyway...I think.

It's based off the mozilla code with more extras thrown in.
