AOL has finally decided to officially nix Netscape. I don’t know, what took them such a long time to make this decision. The only good thing that came out of the takeover of Netscape by AOL, was Firefox. If only AOL saw the writing on the wall and made this decision sooner, they might have been able to save some jobs!!. But, oh well, I guess that is what the folks with 6 digit salaries get to make decisions for :)..
This just shows, how fast stakes can change in the Internet world. At one time, Netscape looked it was invincible..and then came along Internet Explorer by Microsoft.Â I somehow see the same situation with Microsoft and Google. The good part is that we, as consumers, come out as winners.
