Netscape

Netscape browserInternet browser first introduced as Mosaic Netscape 0.9 on October 13, 1994, Netscape is an Internet browser that was popular during the early 1990's and was in a constant browser war between Microsoft Internet Explorer. The popularity and use of Netscape continued to decline in the late 1990's, which helped with the open source Mozilla project and then the acquisition on November 24, 1998 by AOL for an estimated value of $4.2 billion.

As of March 1, 2008 Netscape is no longer supported and is rarely used although can still be downloaded. The picture is an example of what the final version of Netscape Navigator looks like opening the Computer Hope web page.

Consider Mozilla Firefox when looking for an alternative browser or upgrade.
