This is awesome!

Netscape 7.01 Compact is a customized version of the official Netscape 7.01. I used the Client Customization Kit to build the program (the CCK is freely available at Netscape), then added more tweaks and addons.......</i>
<i>
I want my Netscape AOL-free - that was the initial thought and starting point - that's why I called it Compact: it's free of all the AOL-additions that I don't want and don't need. Then I thought about all the hassle i go through when installing addons - why not just include them in the Netscape package? And so I did. Compact contains the addons I think are best for a complete Netscape Suite. The following addons are included: Calendar, Mouse Gestures, ROT-13 En-/Decoder, Message-ID-Finder and Beatnik Audio player. In addition, Compact restores all Mozilla functionalities (plaintext tags, Imageblocker, full access to script and windows). It also contains many more enhancements such as different colors for the different quoting levels in Mailnews.

To call it compact, but then add on a lot of stuff, seems a bit awkward. Of course for a real Netscape Compact, I just use Phoenix.

FWIW, people should be aware that Netscape 7.01 Compact is for Win32 operating environments, not Macintosh or Linux. From the info page:


System requirements:
Netscape 7 Compact runs on Win95/98/98SE/ME/NT/2K/XP with at least 128MB RAM.

Of course, if it wasn't a royal pain in the backside to build Linux CCK'd builds, such things might actually exist...

There are currently customised versions of Netscape 7.0 from both my own website, and
from SillyDog701. Of course, both my site and SillyDog701 will have customised versions
of NS7.01 soon after the official release, and the accompanying CCK app are released.
IMO, it would be great if Netscape made version of the CCK app that can run natively
on Macintosh and Linux platforms, as well as the bog standard Microsoft Windows.

Unless you use a CCK released by Mozilla.org

I already know that :)
But, unfortunately, is not a such thing :(

Most Mozilla guys are skillful enough to tweak Mozilla build without using CCK tool!

No there is a CCK although it is stuck in CVS which I have no Idea how to get into and retreave a copy. Go to Mozilla.org, then to Projects, then scroll down to Non-Browser Projects, and CCK. If someone can get a copy of the CCK for Mozilla 1.2.1 it would be nice if they could post it for people that cannot find there way in CVS.

Before testing it, make a backup of your profile.
Though I created a different folder and specified the path to it,
installing it made my original profile unusable.

I must admit, it´s a good recommendation for people who wouldn´t like to test mozilla.

The CCK peaked my interest, so I downloaded it, ran it, and actually read the EULA. You aren't permitted to use it unless you register and then you must agree to other conditions, like quarterly reporting of installs, for example.

A bit of a hassle. May not seem that much, but remember, IE comes in Windows already. If Netscape wants to get Netscape back into the enterprise, it shouldn't put up unnecessary barriers.

IEAK used to have this requirement and then dropped it. I think Netscape should do the same.

Sorry for drifting a bit off topic, but we are discussing the CCK here! :)

Definitally agree with you, while I do not use it; it's nice to recommend it for people who want to "try out Netscape 7" (although I would much rather them going the Phoenix route)

cheers
