Along with the personal page additions,
Netscape has added some tricks to Netcenter
that will also make their way into an
upcoming release of its Navigator browser.

A "smart browsing" feature could be a
newbie's dream -- instead of entering
cumbersome and even illogical URLs like
"," users can enter keywords
like "ford" and Netcenter will do its best to
take you to the automaker's site.

Then, when checking out the new Ford
Ranger, a user could click the "What's
related" button, and up pop suggested links
to related sites like Alldata's Automotive
Bulletin; Kelley Blue Book; similar beastly
trucks from GM, Chrysler, and Honda; as
well as Netscape's Auto Channel by Excite.

Smart browsing, provided by Alexa Internet,
like most of Netcenter's new features, can
be added to the browser bar.
