As for the features of Navigator 9, I have found that the differences were really minor
Just a question about the base or standalone NS7.2 . Was it developed at the Netscape division of AOL?

I have no ETA simply because we don't have anything concrete. We have a box full of emails, some trivial and some quite serious as per an acquisition of the brand. We're investigating all inquiries. From where I sit I surely hope someone with the interest and resources comes forward soon.Are we talking about six months? A year?
We have never tried to shy away from the fact that Navigator was sourced from Firefox. Usually but not always, the "reskinned, rebadged and cloned" comments come from those that are in a rant with nothing better to do than enter the juvenile comments. I usually dismiss them as such.Netscape Navigator was really not "that much more" than a reskinned Firefox
It all depends on your level of expertise and awareness of security issues and notices, etc. If you practice safe hex you usually have nothing to fear but fear itself. I still use Communicator 4.8 and NS 7.2 on occassion without a hint of being afraid. I also run with Kaspersky AV which will alert me of any website with malicous code .. and it has done so on many occasions. I am in no way making "lite" of security issues, just that there is really no fear of an incident if basic precautions are employed.Now you tell me that folks can still use it and that the fact that NN9 won't be updated in a few weeks is no big deal
You said it I didn't.and Secunia can go to blazes
Only IF somebody else picks up the brand.going to see these "exciting things"
