Someone enlighten me on Netscape. What is AOL's point? intention? agenda? Who really cares about Netscape anymore? As you say, Antony, it's just a customized Firefox and how can it possibly stay abreast of updates and security fixes unless it is constantly riding on the coat tails of Firefox? It has a few developers...right? Big deal. If a powerhouse like MS can't keep up with updates, what makes AOL think it can? Firefox is open to the world community and it seems to me that it is in a better position to get out fixes at a quicker pace. I no longer really understand the entire situation with Netscape/Firefox/Seamonkey. Is AOL going to continue development of NS 8 with its dual rendering engine or will NS 9 end this? It's all a jumbled mess and it seems to be counter-productive. Opera is Opera. Internet Explorer is MS's browser offering. Netscape is????? (a friggin' mess)
So, will we all run to embrace NS 9? And we will use what for our mail? Thunderbird? Netscape 7? Eudora? Just forget about POP mail and have a web account? It's crazy from my perspective.
