What Can You Get For $1 Billion Dollars?

A billion dollars is a lot of money for most people, even most companies. But what does it buy? In Microsoft’s case it buys patents and in Facebook’s case it buys a mobile startup. AOL (Netscape) Patents Microsoft spent $1 billion dollars on what seems like mostly Netscape patents. Presumably this is to declare war […]

Netscape’s Dead

Joy Of Tech has a good comic today on the death of Netscape. As usual very well done. Several elements in there particularly good. AOL’s Running Man doctor pulling the plug, IE 5 Mac in heaven, Netscape throbber reference. Well done.

Netscape Is Dead (Again)

Netscape is dead, yes again. Yes it’s still AOL. For quite some time it’s been nothing more than a few extensions and a new skin on Firefox (you can find them here). Security updates will only be provided until February 1, 2008. So to stay secure, best bet is to plan a migration away from […]

AOL and OpenID

So AOL uses OpenID. What’s pretty cool is that it adds 63 million OpenIDs thanks to AOL’s large user base (according to AOL).

There’s been a ton of speculation regarding “gbrowser”, google’s alleged browser, Netscape’s Firefox based browser, now even thoughts Yahoo might be interested. Though I wonder if that really is beneficial to anyone involved? I’m going to make the bold statement that custom browsers are bad, making extensions are good. There are several reasons why custom […]

There are some among us

Who sport a new(ish) UserAgent: Mozilla/5.0 (OS/2; U; Warp 4.5; de-AT; rv:1.7) Gecko/20040618 Netscape/7.2. I’m apparently not the only one. I guess we shall be seeing it soon. I’m curious what’s bundled with it, and if there are any Netscape tweaks.

Netscape Desktop Navigator

As mentioned all around the web, Netscape is creating an ISP. In hopes of turing into an ISP/content based brand Netscape the other day released a beta of it’s Netscape Desktop Navigator program.
