Lotus releases beta of Web-based Notes application

Net-centric software taking over the world

Lotus has announced the availability of the beta version of iNotes Web Access, a browser-based Web client that supports Notes replication.

The application gives users access to Domino messaging, e-mail, collaboration, personal and company information via a current Web browser, said Amy Caton, a Lotus spokeswoman.

The iNotes system allows users to work offline and then synchronise the changes with a server running Domino.

The iNotes Web client replaces Lotus' WebMail client, which only supports offline access to e-mail.

Lotus in January promised a midyear launch date for iNotes Web Access, but Caton said the commercial version won't arrive until the first quarter of 2001.

The beta-test version supports Internet Explorer 5.0 or higher and Netscape 4.7.

Lotus targets iNotes at small to medium-sized businesses, companies looking to standardise browser-based access for their workforce, ASPs (application service providers) and companies seeking to provide complementary access, Caton said.
