Netscape:End of Support for Netscape web browsers BBC noted Web icon set to be discontinued "...Although a core team has continued to work on the secure browser - it is currently on version nine - AOL has decided to finally pull the plug. "After 1 February, there will be no more active product support for Navigator nine, or any previous Netscape Navigator browser," wrote Mr Drapeau. "We feel it's the right time to end development of Netscape branded browsers, hand the reins fully to Mozilla and encourage Netscape users to adopt Firefox," he said" On the Windows PC computer, we pretty much resisted IE and stuck with Netscape for as long as we could, occasionally pulling up IE only for visitors or clients who were comfortable with it than Netscape (or Firefox, for that matter). Of course when we switched, it was just either Firefox or Safari (Opera in some cases, like to check on browser compatibilities). Just the same, Netscape played a big role in shaping much of how our internet experience is like today.
