Thoughts on teaching, technology, learning and life in an era of change.
Netscape Navigator to bow out
December 29th, 2007

How many of you started surfing the web with Netscape Navigator? I remember conducting Internet workshops for teachers back in 1997 and they were all based on Netscape Navigator. How to use the back and forward buttons, downloading files, contextual menus, bookmarking, urls, exploring directories, configuration, and so on. It was an evolution on from NCSA’s Mosaic browser which you can still download via ftp.
As Tom Drapeau sets out on the Netscape blog Netscape Navigator is set to bow out on February 1st, 2008. It will no longer be supported after that date. This is certainly the end of an era.
