End of Support for Netscape Web Browsers

From: “End of Support for Netscape web browsers – The Netscape Blog“:

Given AOL’s current business focus and the success the Mozilla Foundation has had in developing critically-acclaimed products, 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.

Sniff… But only in a nostalgic kinda way. It’s the right decision, and I praise AOL for advising their users to move to Firefox. Now please please pleeeeeze just do the same for AIM/ICQ, in favour of the Jabber protocol (XMPP), and we’ll be on a roll!

While I’m on the browser subject, everybody’s favourite Factory Joe (aka Chris Messina) has a great post touching on the rising trend of site specific browsers and the state of the Mozpad project (and by association, XUL).

And since I’m in the subject chaining mood, check out Spicebird, a new neat Mozilla-based collaboration suite coming to us from India.
