Netscape Prototype Browser Launched

Netscape has launched a prototype browser based on Firefox 0.9.3 (via). The most interesting thing about this browser is that you can switch the rendering engine from the Gecko Engine to the Trident Engine, used in Internet Explorer, by simply choosing to "Display like IE".

The Buzz says:

The geek in me says 'cool'. The web developer says 'why include the clearly inferior Trident engine at all?' The standards evangelist just says 'aaaaaaaaaaaargh!'
MozillaZine has a detailed look at the browser. You can also look at some screenshots.

The browser is available for limited download. No, I am not bothering to.
