Communicator to Ship with Mac OS X

Thursday July 8th, 1999

Waldo has this great news for Macintosh Mozilla users. Waldo writes, "According to MacOSRumors, 'OS X is expected to ship with at least one Web browser (Internet Explorer if Microsoft ports it, Communicator 5 for certain, as well as a trial version of OmniWeb 3.0 quite likely)'.

Cool! Mozilla shipping w/every new Mac 'for certain'. I like it!"

I think it would be beneficial for AOL/Netscape to work out a deal with Apple to bundle 5.0 with OS X. Think about it -- Apple is at their highest stock value since 1991 nad is showing no signs of slowing down. Tons of people are buying iMacs and Apple is about to release a new notebook. I personally don't use a Mac but I do think that it would be a wise move to get Netscape bundled. It would be the equivalent of Microsoft bundling IE with Windows -- and we all saw what that did for IE, even if it is a piece of doo-doo!!

Seems like now that Netscape is the underdog in the browser wars that they fit right into Apple's "think different" attitude with the whole open source movement. Hey, anything Apple can do to chip away at Micro$oft is good, right?
