Netscape has released all new Netscape Navigator 9.0.Netscape Navigator 9 is available as a standalone installation for Windows, Mac OS, and Linux. If you’re currently using Netscape browser then you have to download the Netscape Navigator 9.0 as automatic update feature in your current Netscape browser will not upgrade to 9.0.

Netscape 9 is developed from the Mozilla FireFox 2.0 and as such shares much of the same basic technology. In addition to the technologies that Netscape 9 shares with Mozilla FireFox 2, it includes additional features such as a number of installed plug ins.

Key features of Netscape Navigator 9 are:

Visual Refresh: Netscape Navigator 9’s theme has been updated to save screen-space and leave more room for the websites you visit.

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).

News Menu and Sidebar: The latest news is built right into the browser, under the News menu. Provided by Netscape.com, you can customize the menu to only contain the news sections you want to monitor. You can also open the News sidebar to always keep an eye on what’s happening.

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.

In-browser voting: Share your opinions with the world! The icons in the Navigator address bar let you share interesting stories you find and vote on stories shared by others.

Sidebar Mini Browser: You’ve always been able to have bookmarks open in the sidebar, Now Netscape has improved this functionality and extended it to all links, not just bookmarks.

Restart Netscape: Now you can restart Navigator (and keep your current tabs intact) by selecting “Restart Navigator” from the File menu.

Resizeable Text area: Drag the bottom-right corners of text fields in forms to add more typing space.

Tab History: Opening a link in a new tab will give the new tab the same history as the source tab for a more seamless tabbed browsing experience.

OPML Support: Netscape Navigator supports importing and exporting your bookmarks in OPML, a popular format for sharing lists of news feeds.
