Netscape has been dead for a very long time, but now it is official.
I started out using Netscape Navigator. Back in the day my local ISP Fuse used it as the default browser on their CD that was sent to new subscribers. I was hooked on it the minute I first used it. I have never given Internet Explorer the time of day since. I went from Netscape Navigator to the Mozilla Suite and then on to Firefox and Thunderbird. Netscape lost me to Firefox and a new logo and skin couldn’t change that.
As the article points out, the last two versions of Netscape were nothing more than re-themed versions of Firfox with some Netscape extensions installed by default.
If you are nostalgic about the old dog, you can download the theme and extensions for Firefox from here.
