Netscape fixes browser's XML bug

Antony Savvas

Netscape has released an updated version of its Netscape 8 browser to fix a bug that broke XML rendering in pages accessed by Microsoft’s Internet Explorer. 


The problem occurred when users installed the new Netscape browser onto their desktop and also tried to use the Internet Explorer browser.


Many users like to use more than one browser on their desktops, particularly those requiring access to certain different features.


Netscape has issued version 8.0.2 to alleviate the problem, which blanked pages in Internet Explorer.


This is the second update to Netscape 8 since it was launched last month. Within hours of launch, Netscape had to issue a security patch to fix several known vulnerabilities that had affected other browsers.


Microsoft had suggested uninstalling Netscape 8 until a fix was found.
