Remember Netscape?

I used to use Netscape and was a huge fan. To this day Netscape 7.2 is still the best browser I have used. At least my foggy brain tells me it was excellent. Many people believe that Netscape lost the browser war to Microsoft, and although that might be somewhat truthful, I still think selling out to AOL was the first nail in the coffin. I mean, AOL, seriously? Anyway, Engadget has a pretty cool article that makes for a nice trip down memory lane. Turns out you can still download Netscape Navigator from Cnet.

Google & Netscape partnership?

Here we go again. While I was writing my MSN post the other day, I actually started thinking about what would happen if Google wound up winning the bid for AOL. As you know, gentle reader, I have an affinity for Netscape, which unfortunately is owned by AOL. Now, what if Google wound up with Netscape. Not only would they get a recognized browser name, albeit one that needs revitalization, but none the less, they would have a brand to work with. Having a Netscape division would permit Google to seperate its activities so that they won’t loose focus on...

Netscape klar til come back

For et par år siden fik jeg et nostalgi trip, der gjorde at jeg skiftede browser og email klient. Jeg skiftede til Netscape 7.1 og senere 7.2, som brugte i et godt styke tid, selvom bder ikke kom nogen opdateringer i meget lang tid. Netscape 7.2 er stadig den browser jeg til dato har syntes bedst om, men på grund af de mange virus/malware/spyware angreb der fandt sted i sin tid besluttede jeg mig at skifte til Firefox og Thunderbird, som jeg brugte i ca. 1½ år inden jeg vendte tilbage til Internet Explorer og Outlook. Firefox og Thunderbird var...

New Netscape.com

It seems as if Netscape is trying to relaunch their website. Nobody really knows what it will be, but it appears as if the site is going to turn into a digg.com type news engine. Now that Jason Calacanis is the head honcho over at Netscape, I guess we will see a lot of social networking, maybe some blogging features, and definitely a user generated news function.   Let us hope that the renewed AOL interest in Netscape will yield a better browser and webmail. However, knowing the AOL approach to Netscape I think that is highly unlikely. I wonder...

Jason Calacanis: “I wish I was still running Netscape”

Jason Calacanis har en meget opmuntrende post omkring det nye Netscape. Noget tyder på at holdet bag det nye site har fået vendtskuden, og at brugerne er ved at komme tilbage. Selvom Netscape ikke er så relevant for mig, nu hvor jeg bor i Danmark igen, så er det ret interessnt at se hvordan social news som fænomen er begyndt at sprede sig til et mere main stream publikum. Det pudsige er at MSN også er begyndt at beta teste en version af den samme service i Holland. Jeg ved ikke så meget om MSN reporter, men det er da...
