Netscape Navigator is doomed to die


If you are one of those that still uses Netscape Navigator as your default browser, then there is bad news for you. From March 1st, 2008 AOL will no longer provide security patches or updates for this browser. Downloads of the older version will still be available from the Netscape Archive but with no up to date security patches.

America Online – AOL has been fighting hard to revive this browser from when they acquired Netscape Communications Corporation back in 1999. The failure to gain market share from Internet Explorer, and the surprising huge success of Mozilla Firefox are the principal reasons that make AOL throw in the towel.

If you are Netscape Navigator die-hard, and don’t find it easy to let it go, then get Mozilla Firefox (a recommendation from the AOL Netscape team), and pimp it with the Netscape theme and extensions.
