Netscape: Navigator–localized version of AIM Today and ?

There’s a beta release of a Netscape navigator toolbar-type app, and news that a new release of the browser is due.
In many ways, the Netscape Navigator beta reminds me of the AIM Today window and of, only with a more localized focus. All have boxes for listings content for news,movies, weather, etc, and all update/refresh periodically so long as there is a persistent connection to the Net.
The AIM team did such an outstanding job (IMHO) building 9.0 and the benefits have appeared in many other products, including the recently refreshed, it’s interesting to imagine them turning their attention to Netscape and a Netscape-labeled app to run along the IE browser as a way to get more AOL-developed tools and content through the pipeline.
