I woke up the day the news broke and couldn't believe the horror of the tale. This is the worst news I have had all year. I will sorely miss Netscape and hope the open source Mozzila project continues. I will not be assimilated by Microsoft's IE software. The last thing I want is embedded AOL crap in my browser though.. So resistence may be futile.

But the more I think about the future of our browser company the more I realize there is a big player that will not let it die. This player is the king of Java, Sun Microsystems. If the browser wars end and microsoft's browser rules then Sun and Java will be left out in the cold. I don't believe Sun will let this happen. Even if they have to through money at the mozzila project.

Ahh.. what an interesting time we live in..

Long live Mozzila..
