End of the line for Netscape Navigator

AOL has decided to end development on Netscape Navigator.

Netscape Navigator was the second browser I used (I used Mosaic before that). For a while it had a commanding lead on the market but once Internet Explorer was released, it just lost ground steadily.

Netscape Navigator became pretty much irrelevant more than a few years ago, and should have been killed off then.

That being said, we should not forget its contribution to the web in general.
