Netscape Speeds Up Release Of Software

By Compiled From Wire Services

Netscape Communications Corp. has speeded up the release of a key feature in its new World Wide Web browser, the latest effort to stave off Microsoft Corp.’s aggressive invasion of the Internet.

Netscape on Tuesday said a test version of its upcoming Communicator browser would incorporate so-called “push” technology in a feature called Netscape Netcaster. Touted as a hot new Internet trend, the delivery method sends online information directly to one’s desktop, avoiding laborious searches.

The test version of Communicator will be available through Netscape’s Web site in 30 days and a final version will generally go on sale by June 30.
