End of Support for Netscape web browsers

Out with the old, in with the new. Many of you will remember when Netscape was the equal of Internet Explorer. AOL, after it had aquired Netscape, and with its huge client base, had the opportunity to take Netscape anywhere. And it did - straight down the toilet. Which is really not a bad thing. To many browsers make for to many security issues. At the moment we have the perfect number. IE [the major shareholder], Firefox [looking for a takeover - but doesn't yet have the numbers] and Opera [although the minority stake holder, is also the innovator. Always the first to introduce new thinking, which is quickly copied by the other two].

After February 1, there will be no more active product support for Navigator 9, or any previous Netscape Navigator browser. This includes Netscape v1-v4.x, Netscape v6, Netscape v7 Suite, Netscape Browser v8, and Netscape Navigator/Messenger 9.
