Netscape - hey ho...

In his book The World is Flat, globalisation in the 21st Century – 2007 Thomas Friedman identifies 10 events/ innovations as world flatteners.

The second of these is about to be discontinued. From February this year Netscape Navigator will no longer be developed or supported.

Apparently over the last few years most of the people working on Netscape have moved over to Mozilla and are working on Firefox. And it would seem it's use is growing, possibly as an alternative to IE7 , 37 % use today according to PC World Techlog

So perhaps we will be OK and the world will remain flat in the safe hands of Firefox. I enjoy using Firefox, can't pin it down, just feel comfortable using it and its plugins
