It’s been a very long time indeed since I even bothered to download Netscape, and even when I did have it on my machine I never actually used it. Must be years since I really did anything at all with it. Now it’s being discontinued because apparently no-one else much is using it either: BBC NEWS | Technology | Web icon set to be discontinued:
Netscape Navigator, now owned by AOL, will no longer be supported after 1 February 2008, the company has said.
In the mid-1990s the browser was used by more than 90% of the web population, but numbers have slipped to just 0.6%.
Hmmm, I first brushed with Netscape back when it was at version 0.9. That’s a long time ago now. Now it’s at version 9.
