|Netscape, now only famous for the oldschool “optimized for Netscape” on outdated webpages, has dropped from a browser share of over 50% in ’98 to less than 1% now.
What went wrong? Netscape was ‘victim’ of Microsoft’s notorious ways of dealing with competitors. But in the end most blame lies with Netscape self, due to lack of innovation and inability to tie customers to their product. The Netscape browser was good in the beginning but got Slowwww, buggy, and had an (even more) ugly layout compared to Internet Explorer.
Struggeling to survice Netscape became in 2006 a non-innovative boring web portal, waiting to completely dissapear into the history books.
