AOL aims to secure surfing with new Netscape browser
America Online on Feb. 17 plans to release the first public test version of a new Netscape browser that is designed to protect users from scams and malicious code while surfing the Web.
With the release, AOL is taking aim at Microsoft's dominant Internet Explorer Web browser, which has been the subject of many security vulnerabilities. Also, AOL is looking to piggyback on the popularity of Firefox, the open source Web browser that was released in November and has since been downloaded nearly 22 million times.
