RIP Netscape Navigator

Het is er dan toch van gekomen: Netscape Navigator is dood. Eigenlijk doet het me wel wat, want Netscape Navigator was mijn allereerste webbrowser, ergens halverwege de jaren ’90. May your soul rest is peace NN (ik zie die draaiende “N” nog altijd voor me…). Zucht.
De gasten raden iedereen aan om over te schakelen naar Firefox, wat eigenlijk uit dezelfde stal komt.

Q: I use Netscape now. Now that Netscape is stopping support, what do I do?
A: The Netscape Team fully stands behind the fine work being done by the Mozilla Foundation. We recommend that you download Mozilla Firefox and give it a try. We know you’ll enjoy it!
Q: Will I still be able to use Netscape?
A: You will still be able to download old versions of Netscape from the Netscape Archive (link coming). However, these products are no longer supported. Our recommendation for the nostalgic out there is to download Mozilla Firefox, and add on the Netscape theme and Netscape extensions.

    RIP Netscape. Browser Wars II should be interesting.

    It sure will.. I’m currently using Firefox as main browser, but I use IE7 every once in a while too… I wonder where we will be at the end of 2008.
