AOL has finally read the writing on the wall and decided to discontinue Netscape. Netscape always struck me as a company in the right place at the right time. However they never had the business sense or the technical skills to really capitalize on what they stumbled into. Of course, Firefox shall live on. In many ways Firefox is what Netscape should have been. It is the browser that learned from Netscape's mistakes. (Most others--Opera and IE included--never did.)
