I think they stopped development on AOL Explorer too. Besides, that used a different browser engine (IE).

They have created and discontinued so much software in the past year that I can't keep up with it any more...and I am one of their official beta testers.  :-[

My prediction is that they will focus 08 on propeller,their digg clone.From what i hear the update that is soon to come is going to be really good.

Just a prediction though.From the looks of their wikipedia page they don't look like they have a whole lot else going for them.

That's unfortunate. I recently revisited Netscape and found it to be one of the fastest browsers. It looks like I'll have to stick with Opera which I probably would have done anyway mostly because I am so used to it.
