AOL Patches Netscape Browser, Fixes IE Breakdown



Courtesy of TechWeb News

America Online Friday rolled out a patched Netscape 8.0 browser that finally fixed a bug which broke rival Internet Explorer's ability to render some XML pages

In late May, a developer on Microsoft IE's team blasted Netscape and AOL for the bug, and told users who had installed Netscape 8.0 to uninstall the browser so they could use Internet Explorer. In turn, AOL said that such an extreme move was "just silly."

At that time, a spokesman for AOL promised a fix for Netscape would be available within days.

The newly-patched Netscape 8.02, which can be downloaded free of charge, resolves the IE XML issue, Netscape said in the release notes accompanying the update.

Other bugs, some of which caused the browser to crash, have also been fixed, the notes continued, and the software's performance has been tweaked as well.
