NEW YORK — Netscape Navigator, the world's first commercial Web browser and the launch pad of the Internet boom, will be pulled off life support Feb. 1 after a 13-year run.

Its current caretakers, Time Warner Inc.'s AOL, decided to kill further development and technical support to focus on growing the company as an advertising business. Netscape's usage dwindled with Microsoft Corp.'s entry into the browser business, and Netscape all but faded away following the birth of its open-source cousin, Firefox.

Wow, the end of Netscape Navigator. I remember back in Middle school when we first got internet at our schools. We used nothing but Netscape to access the internet for research papers and for recreation. I guess the use of high-speed internet is growing so rapidly now, there is no need for Netscape anymore. RIP Netscape.

But I use Netscape! Less prone to viruses than my Internet Explorer! Even my Firefox died.

I agree...I'm still running Netscape...I only launch one of the others when some web sites execute code specific to IE etc

It's faster and much less BS prone
