Netscape releases Navigator 9

I'm a bit confused why anyone would want this, but what the heck: Netscape has released the latest version of its Navigator browser, which appears to be based on Mozilla Firefox It has a different set of (green) toolbar icons and a few unique, but not particularly compelling, features:

Cross-platform - Run Navigator 9 on Windows, Mac OS X, or Linux!

URL correction - Navigator will automatically correct common typos made in Web addresses

Link Pad - Use the Link Pad as a holding area for interesting links that don’t merit bookmarking

FF2 Extensions - Install any Firefox 2-compatible extension

Sidebar - Use the sidebar as a "mini browser" to keep a page in plain sight while you surf through other pages
