AOL To Buy Netscape?

Sunday November 22nd, 1998

From Ben Marklein comes this interesting news -- apparently AOL is considering a buyout of Netscape in a stock swap. For the news, check out News.com and Techweb. Sun may be taking over Netscape's business application division.

UPDATE: Another more in-depth article is available at washingtonpost.com.

Here's another article - this one from the New York Times website. To view it, you must be be a registered user (it's free, though, so check it out).

UPDATE: An article at News.com confirms the rumors, but no deal has been reached at this time.

Remember the idea of millions of CD's with Mozilla? Well it's gonna be a reality. This just means more development on Mozilla and more users.
