Netscape Discontinued

According to the BBC, Netscape Navigator is being discontinued. Thank God.

The article goes over a brief history of Netscape. BBC left out the fact that the languishing browser has been the laughing stock of the alternative browsers for some time. The farce that was Internet Explorer Mode in Netscape 8 was the final nail in the coffin for me. Mozilla and, later, FireFox have been much better choices for alternative browsers since the Gecko rendering engine was unleashed, and Internet Explorer was arguably preferable in the Netscape 4 days (what the hell is a layer, anyway?).

Good riddance, Netscape Navigator.
