Netscape Revamps My Netscape

Thursday April 26th, 2001

While we normally don't post news on Netscape stuff, this is one that we wanted to talk about. Netscape today turned off customized content on My Netscape. This means that our rdf channel there, as well as our sidebar, no longer work. We have been working on a new sidebar panel for a while, and this will help push it along. As soon as it's ready, we'll let you know.

If you want to complain about this, we highly encourage you to email Netscape and ask for your custom content back.

This must be coming from AOL. First it was the watered down mail services. No filters, no import of an address book ect. Now this, channels gone, no selfdetrimed backgrounds or even colors ect. Could they really be thinking that this will drive visitors over to AOL? Just a thought. An answer is to move that to Yahoo. As much as I value using <skeetersrow@netscape.net> I've got all these missing features at <skeetersrow@yahoo.com> PLUS!!! POP3, yes, you read that right. Now, in my Mozilla mail/news program, I've got my Yahoo mail as a POP3 which means I don't even have to go there and look at all the damm ads to pick up my internet mail. This is something that AOL Netscape didn't let us do in Mozilla over the IMAP like in NS 6X
