Like Netscape Browser 8, this release will be based on Mozilla Firefox. According to the Netscape Bog, Number 9 will be a standalone browser which will lack a mail client or Web page editor. It will have a tighter integration with the Netscape.com portal.
Netscape 9 will be released simultaneously for Windows, Linux and Mac OS X. Netscape Browser 8 is only available for Windows.
