“After 1 February, there will be no more active product support for Navigator nine, or any previous Netscape Navigator browser,” wrote Mr Drapeau.
This brought back some memories for me. Navigator was the best browser at the time, especially, when part of the ‘Netscape Communicator‘ internet suite. Their mail program was called Messenger.
One reason for me not switching to IE initially (after evil M$ started bundling it with their sucky operating system) was that it was far more convenient imho to have the mail program integrated with the browser, so you could just switch from one to the other.
There again, at the time t’Internet wasn’t really ‘on’ all the time, and I didn’t really use it much. Initially, around 1-2 hours a day – didn’t even have my own computer at the start.
Anyway, Netscape Communicator/Navigator, you gave me a lot of pleasure, and I thank you for that.
Rest in Peace.
