Netscape.com Unveils New Look

Netscape.com opened its virtual doors Wednesday with a new look intended to maximize the online experience.

The redesign of the site is an attempt to provide users with easy access to a complete package of Web applications, content and features, according to Jim Martin, senior vice president and general manager of Netscape.

"The new layout allows users to quickly maneuver throughout the site through the strategic placement of its six most heavily trafficked areas," said Martin. "By drawing from its commitment to improve and innovate its products, Netscape has targeted users who value the ease and convenience of using the Internet as a tool throughout the course of the day."

As an added bonus, the company is offering a free download of the final version of its Beta browser, Netscape 6 PR3. The product is available in both English and Japanese versions and boasts new features, including added functionality and greater stability as well as security and customization features.

Martin noted that the redesigned site offers such enhancements as simple navigation, quick and easy access to Netscape Web applications, interactive site features, multi-tiered content and a seamless online experience.

"We are providing a more productive way for professionals to manage their increasingly converging work and personal lives with online tools tailored for their needs," he said.
