I’m glad y’all are so sweet with romantic memories of Netscape’s software, but every version I tried was crashy and awful. And don’t forget that Netscape the company (whose largest investor at the time was the private venture fund of AmerIndo Investment Advisors, largely funded by Indonesian and Chinese billionaires) was the main plaintiff in the Clinton DOJ’s assault on Microsoft.

So I say good-bye and good riddance to Netscape, and I further hope its White-House-Coffee-Sipping investors with their whispers into Bill Clinton’s ear lost not just their shirts but their Mao jackets and little red books as well.

Microsoft caused their own problems with Clinton’s DOJ. First, they made a deal with Janet Reno. Then they willfully violated it, and she started stomping her boot in their face. It’s too bad that Microsoft didn’t invest that energy into designing a better browser instead.
