Netscape 8 Beta

No download yet, but Netscape has put up a page listing the features of the soon to be released Netscape 8 Beta. Having the IE renderer (Trident) as part of the browser may be helpful to those sites that refuse to work in other browsers, but it discourages web developers to code in a standards way (they will just tell the users to put Netscape in IE mode).

I though they would have done a suite, based on Firefox, Thunderbird and Chatzilla. Perhaps in 8.1.
