Netscape (the company) is Dead

Well folks, it's finally happened. AOL has had enough fun courting the techies for a time (they did a horrible job of it I might add). After their recent deal with Microsoft for a 7 year IE contract it's not too shocking that they dispanded Netscape yesterday. They've even taken the logos of the building.

Happily for the browser world, the Mozilla Foundation was created. That means there is still hope for the future of the Web.

The battle's thickened a bit.

Back into the fray I go...

Excellent. 8o) Thanks, Joy. That's a much better outcome than MozillaZine.org made it sound.
