Support (primarily security patches) ended 2/1/2008, thus all vulnerabilities discovered in the last 14 months are still not fixed.

According to my webstats about 0% beaten out by unknown at 0.1%, this By the amounts of hits Netscape generated looks like it might have been one person viewed a few pages. Note that it's listed becaus there were some hits from it but overall insignificant, proabably 5 or 6 pages.


MS Internet Explorer 73.6 %
Firefox
20.4 %
Safari 3.2 %
Mozilla 1.4 %
Opera 1 %
Unknown 0.1 %
Netscape
0 %

Wow, I thought they stopped making that like 5 years ago after Microsoft no longer had to package it with Windows.

I bought my PC in 2006, and it came with Netscape.

It's not that bad to be honest.

I believe AOL owned it at one point? That alone keeps me away from it.

Netscape was literally the only browser available in the early days of the internet, back when the internet was basically a text only environment, no search engines (you used to buy a paper directories listing sites and their URL's)

Netscape had 90% market share at one point, developed such advancements as SSL, included Communicator (email client) and IE didn't even exist.

Only graphical browser anyway. Even before Netscape there was Lynx.

Back in the 90's I loved Netscape and used it exclusively. I hated Microsoft and anything to do with it. But Microsoft won and Netscape lost.

Now I have 6 browsers and I use them to check my websites on different browsers. I like Firefox best, but now my toolbar won't work and I'm forced to use IE until I get my toolbar back.

Microsoft had to package it after they put Netscape just about out of business because in earlier years, Ie was so poor, and Netscape was really good, Microsoft tried to buy them, and when they said no to selling, Microsoft then told companies like Dell, PB, Gateway and EVERY other, that IF they allow Netscape on their machines, they would NOT sell them windows anymore...

Microsoft, although is the widest used (for similar reasons) does such dirty business, and have ben found culpable of this MANY times.
