Netscape Navigator will finally be laid to rest tomorrow.click hereWho remembers those cosy Netscape versus Internet Explorer debates in the good old days?
never used it myself but "rest in PC"
I don't. Roll on IE8.
"Roll on IE8"Unless MS decides to base it on the Gecko engine (Hell will freeze over sooner), those words fill me with one thought: "great, yet another quirky non-standard platform to debug".
Oh ye of little faith.
how did AOL manage to let 90% of the market go.....O yes Microsoft
You want to try coding for IE7 in addition to having to debug for IE6! : (
Not an old friend of mine at all as it's a browser I never liked.
"how did AOL manage to let 90% of the market go.....O yes Microsoft"To complete the sentance, and so put it in a different lightO yes Microsoft decided to build a competitive product in to the Operating System - thus taking away the bulk of the market at a stroke.Whats perhaps fairly remarkable is that Firefox (which sprung out of Netscape roots) has managed to regain a respectable market share solely by being better, and without the "built-in" advantage.
DieSsegood point well put
Netscape was my first browser all those years ago - but I can't truthfully say that I'm mourning its departure.
