    Netscape is Kaput !! (Netsacape - All Flavo(u)rs)

    It seems, from several sources, that AOL has stopped all development of Netscape. They have, apparently, either terminated, or are in the process of terminating the employment of all programmers involved with Netscape/Mozilla. Their new browser of choice is IE. Golly, should any of this be a surprise since their recent association with Microsoft?

    Apparently the development of the Mozilla, Firebird and Thunderbird browsers/email clients will continue independently of AOL.

    Have a Great day!!!

    Ken, I am using the latest version of Netscape which is 7.1, It is true that there will be nore more upgrades, however, there are rumors of IBM purchasing Netscape for development. I really love 7.1 with the Pop-up stopper, autofill for forms, password manager, ability to label mail with colors, etc. I refuse to use IE. Libbie L

    Hi Libbie

    Netscape is/was a private label version of Mozilla which is under ongoing revision (improvement).
    Mozilla should do everything you've been accustomed to with Netscape.....and more.
    You can download Mozilla, free, from the link in my post above, but be aware, it's a 13 meg file. Also, check the "Relaese Notes" for installation information.
    Or.....you could try the stand-alone versions, Firebird (browser) and Thunderbird (email client), available from the same web page as Mozilla.

    As far as importing your current bookmarks, address book, etc. from Netscape, maybe Big Al can jump in here or you could PM him for instructions. I've done it, but I fumble through it each time and would probably thoroughly confuse you if I tried to explain. It's not really difficult, I just can't seem to remember the process.
    This has all been covered before in the Lounge but, considering the temporary lack of a search function and the archiving of the older posts, it may be difficult to find the information.

    Have a Great day!!!
    Ken

    Thanks Ken. I am well aware of Mozilla, but don't intend to switch at this time. The Netscape 7 Newsgroup has many users of Mozilla and there is a Mozilla newsgroup also, so I think I can get instructions for importing my profile when necessary. Libbie
