                 NEW YORK (CNNfn) -- In an apparent bid to
                 beat Microsoft Corp. in the emerging intranet
                 market, Netscape Communications Corp. began
                 offering free copies Monday of its new
                 Netscape ONE software-development tools. 
                    "Netscape ONE unifies into a single platform
                 the standards of the Internet, such as HTTP,
                 HTML, LDAP and Java, and a tool chest of
                 open, cross-platform software and technologies
                 for creating rich, distributed applications on the
                 Internet and intranets," the company said in a
                 statement. 
                    Netscape said it planned to offer free copies
                 of the product to developers. 
                    The company apparently hopes the giveaway
                 will prompt programmers to write Internet and
                 intranet applications compatible with a wide
                 variety of computer systems, rather than just
                 industry leader Microsoft Windows. 
                    Netscape One's technical standards, called
                 "Corba," apparently aim to directly compete
                 with a proposed Microsoft standard called
                 ActiveX. 
                    In a related move Monday, Netscape
                 unveiled JavaScript Version 1.1, an enhanced
                 version of the company's Java-based scripting
                 language.
