CNET News.com has a special section marking the tenth anniversary of the first public beta
of Netscape Navigator. The retrospective includes news that America Online is working on
a new version of Netscape, which will be unveiled alongside a revamped Netscape portal
in the New Year (this effort is distinct from AOL's braindead project to build an IE-based
browser). There's also an article about the ventures many Netscape alumni have been
involved with and a collection of links from around the Web loosely answering the
question of whether Netscape can ever regain its former glory.

the last few years, such as the mauling from Microsoft's IE, and the corporate neglect from AOL,
it all begs one pertinent question . . . is there really much left to celebrate anymore . . . ?
For what's it's worth . . .
