Today is the worst day of my life. I am watching a friend, a partner dying. And a piece of me is dying with it.

I first used Navigator 0.9 - and I was instantly in love. I was a CS student at that time, and I was a hacker in my free time. My goal become to work for Netscape.

Last year I finally got a job at Netscape. It was the happiest day of my life, a fulfillment of my dreams. It only lasted until today.

My heart is broken. Rest in peace, Netscape...
