RIP Netscape December 30, 2007

Posted by rjdohnert in Opinions.

Netscape has formally ended support for their web browser.  While this is a sad day, the Netscape origins of Firefox cannot be denied.  While Netscape was basically shilling a customized version of Firefox, this move not only marks the end of Netscape the browser, it also marks the death of Netscape the portal.  After all, Google is the default homepage of the Firefox browser and there are few if any reasons to change it.  So sorry, this is the end of an era and the end of one of the first internet companies.  Sorry Netscape, stick the fork in…you are done.
