Communicator 4.04 for OS/2 Released
Happened on: Tuesday, September 29th.
Out of Beta and into General Availability, Communicator 4.04 for OS/2 is the must-have upgrade to Netscape Navigator 2.02 that we've been stuck with for so long. Available for free to all owners of OS/2 Warp 4, Communicator is available with both low-grade encryption capabilities, or 128-bit high-grade encryption for use within the continental US and Canada only.
The download weighs in at 7mb, plus another 2.3 megs for the optional and updated Plugin pack. You might want to note that as of writing, there is a typo on the download page for the 128-bit (high-grade encryption) version that reports Communicator's size to be 16 megabytes instead of 7. So don't worry if the file is half the size you expected, it hasn't been corrupted.
Early users are reporting faster page-rendering speeds but some are still having problems with blank lines corrupting images. Mike Kaply, of the Communicator development team, posted some tips for Communicator, one of which claims to fix this remaining major problem.
