Our Role In Netscape's Future...

Tuesday September 15th, 1998

Jason Kersey writes in with an interesting question for those involved in the Mozilla effort. Read on.

"You saw the features I talked about for 4.5, but now Netscape has posted a press release and has kicked off 'project turbo' which is aimed at win nt/9x users and getting Netscape back into their lives via defaulting all internet related things like browsing & email to Netscape& Netcenter. What I was wondering is, is this going to continue in 5.0 and are we going to have to do it? In my eyes, Navigator is becoming a tool just to get to Netcenter to make ad money for Netscape. Now that we are helping with the developement, are we contributing to Netscape's ad revenue also buy making sure all the 'smartbrowsing' and other stuff works? What do you think?"

Umm....Of course Netscape is going to try to make money off the browser. I knew this the first day they released the source code. Netscape has a busniess to run like it or not.

Atlest N4.5P2 gives you the choice weather you want it as the default browser or use Netcenter's search as your default Internet search unlike IE!!

If Microsoft had its ways, they would have made the web proprietary only letting IE read web sites then Apple would have really been F***ed, but Billy didn't see the web coming.. ;)
