Netscape Navigator team just released a brand new Netscape Navigator 9 version: beta 2.

According to their blog, Beta 2 fixes some bugs and ads new features.

Beta 2 addresses the following issues that appeared in Beta 1:
Added URL as a tooltip to Linkpad entries
Added “Reload” to the FAS and Tracker sidebar context menus
Closing the last tab will now close the browser window
Fixed the CFBundleSignature on the Mac DMG
Fixed bug when removing the location bar while customizing the toolbar
Various fixes to in-browser voting
Various performance fixes

I have to admit, haven’t really ever tried Netscape Navigator 9, but downloading it now.

You may also want to download it here.

What I’ve found interesting in Navigator 9? Well… Here are some interesting features:

Navigator will automatically correct common typos made in Web addresses.
Examples: .cmo => .com, htp:// => http://, netscape,com => netscape.com

Install any Firefox 2-compatible extension.

I will write about this release more, just have to use it for at least few hours first.
