Netscape Browser


Netscape is Officially Dead

Netscape

December 28, 2007: Netscape developers announced that AOL would discontinue their web browser on February 1, 2008, due to low market share.

Netscape's development director, Tom Drapeau, wrote: "AOL's focus on transitioning to an ad-supported Web business leaves little room for the size of investment needed to get the Netscape browser to a point many of its fans expect it to be."

AOL acquired Netscape in a $4.2 billion deal in 1998. In 2003 the Mozilla Foundation separated from Netscape and AOL with its former parent providing a $2 million dollar parting gift.


The Netscape Problem

Netscape's 4.x series of browsers had a poor support for CSS and no support for XML.

It took Netscape over three years after the release of 4.0, to produce its next-generation browser. This delay clearly hurt Netscape's possibilities to dominate the browser market.
