NETSCAPE ---- R.I.P. !!!
« on: January 01, 2008, 06:22:40 PM »
Netscape is dead.

Quote
Netscape Navigator, the world’s first commercial Web browser and the launch pad of the Internet boom, will be pulled off life support Feb. 1 after a 13-year run.

NS has been in terrible decline for so long, this really should be called "euthanasia". It's truly a mercy killing at this point. :(

I adored Netscape; the Navigator Gold Suite kept me from sleep at night, just basking in its wonder. . .

But yeah, what he said. This is euthanasia.

Ok - Everytime I do this, I'm going to blame it on timezone differences from now on!  ;)
