"I have yet to believe that consumers are asking for this stuff," said Bijan
Dorostkar, who does business development for chip design company RTG Inc.

Case sounded a note of caution, saying the industry must be careful to include all
citizens in the Internet, and not just the affluent. About three-quarters of homes in
the U.S. with incomes of $75,000 and above are connected to the Web, Case said,
compared with only 10 percent of the poorest households.

"I don't think there is a more urgent task than dealing with difficult societal
issues, including the digital divide," Case said. "It's no use just talking about it,
we have to do it," he added.

AOL-Netscape also announced the availability of the JavaScript 1.5 language.
Netscape 6 Preview Release 1, available for free public download today, features full
support for JavaScript 1.5. Netscape claims that it is the first vendor to deliver full
support for the ECMA-262 edition 3 standard of JavaScript.
