Netscape Announces Third Generation Browser

Netscape Communications Corp. announces a third generation of its World Wide Web browser software to compete with Microsoft Corp. The new software focused on extranets, or private Internet connections between companies. The competition between the two companies has increased since then, culminating in a mandate by a federal judge that Microsoft make its Windows operating system available without its Internet Explorer browser.
