Hi!

Here's an interview with the person who hacked Netscape.com on July 26.

Did Netscape Ignore XSS Flaw?

Regards,

Don

Netscape is dead, AOL is just using their domain to spread a browser stuffed with advertising thats based on an obsolete version of firefox and uses Internet Explorer to render almost everything.

The site itself is a ripoff of Digg.

I thought it was hillarious that Blake Ross devoted a whole week of his blog to "Why Netscape 8 sucks".

At least something good came from Netscape (The Mozilla Organization), even if Netscape is gone.
