RIP Netscape…..Long Live Netscape.

January 3, 2008 at 9:21 am

Back in 1995, Netscape Navigator was the browser of choice.  Everyone used it.  It was one of the first web browsers that supported javascript as well as inline images.  Everyone used it.  It was the internet in the mid 90’s.  Well, thanks to Microsoft it’s gone.

Steven J. Vaughan-Nichols wrote a excellent article for eWeek that outlines it’s history.

I say, the spirit of Netscape lives on today in Mozilla Firefox.  In fact, Mozilla had it’s roots at Netscape first.  Firefox is now gaining strength over Internet Explorer and it’s now my default browser on ANY OS.

For as much as I live in the browser, it’s funny that there’s only one company that has it’s business solely based on it’s browser.  That would be Opera.  And even Opera is free with the company relying on it’s mobile phone browser to make it money.

Anyway, RIP Netscape…..the Firefox has already risen out of it’s ashes.
