Netscape is dead

AOL announced today that they will be dropping support for the Netscape browser on Feb 1, 2008. Netscape used to be main competitor to Internet Explorer and the two browsers fought for market dominance for many years. Netscape finally lost that battle and has been fading into obscurity for many years with current market share figures for Netscape at a minuscule 0.6%. With this announcement AOL has finally pulled the plug on the browser and is recommending remaining Netscape users to adopt Firefox. The Netscape.com portal web site will continue to operate.
