Netscape Communicator and forced reload: a follow-up

Regarding the mention last time that Netscape Communicator now uses the Shift key rather than the Option key to force a network reload: Several readers noted that the shift to the Shift key was to be consistent with how it works in the Windows (and other) versions of Communicator.

Steve Dagley (one of the Mac developers at Netscape) offers some related info about changes likely to appear in the next version of Communicator: "As of about an hour ago, Shift or Option will invoke a Super Reload (although this is subject to change). A related change I just put into Communicator tonight will fix the problem with PR3 only reloading from the cache unless one did a Super Reload to force a network reload."
