    I didn't even know Netscape was still making a browser. They are like Michael Jordan after coming back from his 2nd retirement. In the words of Neil Young, it's better to burn out than to fade away.

    Netscape needs to be shot, roll over and die already. Who seriously gives a **** about them anymore.

    Well, I've used Netscape since 1995 or so. I'm kind of partial to them. I always just thought that Netscape became Mozilla as they were pretty much the same thing. Didn't Mozilla develop out of Netscape anyway? Oh, Anyone remember having to pay for Netscape in the early days?

    IIRC, Mozilla was the developmental codename of the original Mosaic Netscape. You are correct about the opensource Mozilla. The Mozilla Foundation was setup by AOL to continue development of Mozilla which would be the basis of the "commercial" Netscape browser. Firefox was a cutdown version of Mozilla, but with the addition of Extensions. Development continues on the "old" Mozilla with a new name, Seamonkey. The current Windows version of Netscape allows the user to switch between the Internet Explorer and Gecko engines to maximize prospects of rendering pages correctly.

    Personally, I find it silly to read people claim that they spit on Netscape while singing the praises of Firefox. Seems very much like rejecting a woman because she is too ugly while declaring her identical twin to be the most beautiful girl in the world.
