All,

It looks as though the battle is over...
http://www.theregister.co.uk/content/4/31765.html

It's a shame back in the days of IE3.0. I always perferred Netscape. Oh well it's what I knew would happen eventually Crying or Very sad.

Quote:
Netscape's death will provoke a thousand arguments, but none will be so useful as utility. Well, maybe and perhaps, browsers don't really matter too much. But the fact that Microsoft's miserable excuse for a web browser - a sorry piece of code that has been untouched by human hand for many years, now - speaks volumes about indulging the wrong kind of people with big responsibilities.


Cheers,

Norm Twisted Evil

It's not all bad news though. Now Mozilla is free from AOL with $2m handshake as well Shocked . Check it out on mozilla.org for more info.
