My final contribution to this undeservedly long thread follows.
AOl stopped supporting Netscape7.x, getting rid of its staff. Was there any announcement? I think not. That was four years ago, or so. Many people have continued using NS7.2, and had no clue of what has been going going. Then, AOL, decided to pursue a standalone browser, but, not in-house. Out of it came out the Netscape Browser|Netscape8. And, more cluelessness. Then, for a year or more, AOL decided to have a small Netscape group, and, out of it Navigator9 ensued. AOL got tired again, and goodbye Netscape.
But, this time there was not as much urgency, and there were announcements, and, all in sudden the NS7.2 realize that they may have a non-working program. More cluelessness.
And, the Netscape group introduced an add-on in Navigator9.0.6 for a smooth transition to Firefox or Flock. Would one think that it would work? Not for many people.
I suppose that the Netscape name has some magic, but if it is a big deal, one can rename the shortcut, and, and even use the internal icons. So, what's the big deal?
I am still using Navigator22.214.171.124, I guess, because I like to get irritated, no more no less.
I could tell you why, but I have better things to do.
