Netscape Navigator will die on February 1, 2008. AOL, which acquired Netscape in November 1998 for $4.2 billion, has announced today that they will discontinue development of the browser.
Actually this is not a surprise for us, since the Netscape browser is now based in Firefox. So one has to really wonder why AOL did not in the first place ell heir customers to use Firefox instead.
Must have been one of those smart business moves. RIP Netscape. You have been our first web browser.
