    Netscape 7.0

    I was just over at Download.com and downloaded the latest version of Netscape - 7.0.

    I have to say, I do like it more than the previous. I have never liked or favored Netscape in any way, and I never will, but they have done a good job on this version.

    I still don't understand why it is so hard to have support for simple things like <hr> tags, but I guess the Netscape people don't see the need to have a red or blue horizontal line.

    Anyways, what do you think?

    NS7 doesn't support <hr> tags? That's news to me. Personally I will never bother with Netscape because I have Mozill a- same excellent rendering engine / tabbed browsing, none of the irritating bundled AOL rubbish.

    It does support <hr> tags, just not styling them. Making them thinner, coloring, etc.

    It took about 30 seconds to delete all the AOL icons, etc.

    Another? Yuck... I wish theyd stop making this one already! I hate it. Now Im just going to have one more crappy browser to test sites on that wastes space on my HD.

    Oh yah and I totally agree about the <hr> thing! It irritates the living bejezuz out of me!

    Code:
    <img src="bluedot.gif" width="300" height="1"
    voila... blue line

    Besides, isn't <hr> deprecated?

    Try styling them with CSS which is the standard instead of using Microsoft's proprietary tags like color and noshade.

    Deleting the icons is one thing. However what about the megabytes of space for those features you don't necessarily use like editing, chat, email, AOL Instant Messenger. Lot of waste there.

    During the installation process, you can disable many of the things you don't want (Mail & Instant Messaging, as well as the third party programs/plugins).

    If you're using Windows, Microsoft has kindly installed IE, Outlook Express, and (if you're using XP) MSN Messenger by default. Those are difficult, if not impossible, to uninstall.

    To elaborate on W Luke's comment, try:

    Code:
    <html><head><title>test</title><style>
    hr {
     background-color: blue; /* for moz */
     color: blue;            /* for IE */
    }
    </style></head>
    <body><p>coloured Horizontal Rules are easy 
    with CSS.</p>
    <hr>
    <p>It would be even easier if IE and Moz would
    agree on which property to use.  Anyone know 
    what opera does?</p>
    </body></html>

    Not that I'd noticed, though several of its commonly-used attributes are. See http://www.w3.org/TR/html401/present...s.html#edef-HR

    I do use CSS to style my <hr> but sometimes it doesnt appear to work. Maybe something is fudged else where though. Thats certainly not impossible.
