AOL Releases Netscape Browser 8.1

Version 8.1 of the Firefox based Netscape Browser was made available Wednesday, bolstering the software's spyware protection and adding a built-in RSS reader that displays news feeds directly in the browser. Netscape touts improved speed and security, while offering the ability to use IE's engine for compatibility.

The spyware protection in Netscape 8.1 automatically scans all downloads and blocks potential malware. A new security center has also been added to highlight the browser's safety features. AOL has additionally enabled support for multiple profiles in version 8.1, which will allow different family members or users to have separate settings, passwords and bookmarks.
