Bidding farewell to Netscape browsers

It's will be an extremely sad time for all Netscape Navigator fans and users, because from February 2008 onwards, "there will be no more active product support for Navigator 9, or any previous Netscape Navigator browser. "

Yes, Netscape web browsers will finally be discontinued soon. Check the link for more details.

Hey, but that's not surprising or unexpected. Netscape has been suffering from severely low user base for quite a few years already, especially with the introduction of Firefox and later versions of IE. I personally don't feel anything for Netscape, but I do know that this isn't the Navigator we know back in the 90s. Back then, it was a popular browser, but innovation tapered off considerably and with competition from other browsers today, I'm sad to say that it can no longer hold it's dominance and has to go.
