Sweet! Maybe they'll finally get around to releasing Netscape Navigator 4!

On a sort of related note, having model trains or plastic dragons doesn't make your company an awesome place to work if your company policies resemble Initech from Office Space.

When I found out the place where my wife worked had Hawaiian shirt Fridays, I did not stop hounding her (or laughing) until she changed jobs.

Every brash new "hip" company starts out this way, then sooner or later the screws tighten and it becomes just like any other place to work.

No doubt.  Once the lifers settle in along with the bean counters you'll have an ugly, fat, old workforce that spends more time on dis'billtee cuz of their diabeetus than they do playing ping pong and quaffing IPAs in the "agile area".

Netscape Navigator was a copy of NCSA Mosaic with a bunch of new, non-standard features haphazardly added, held together with electrical tape and baling wire.

I'm not saying Microsoft didn't use unfair tactics to shepherd users towards their own web browsers, but had it been based solely on technical merit, IE 4 still would have beaten out NN 4.

We bash Netscape, but without them there'd be no Mozilla (Firefox).

I loved Netscape. Used it until the bitter end.

I found a copy of NCSA Mosiac still sitting on CNET's servers from 2001.  It will not let me run or install, I have a "not compatible" version of Windows (7 64bit), not working even with compatibility mode.  I guess I have to dig up a copy of XP or older.

I swear, I thought the headline said "Netflix" when I first read it. Then I RTFA, and was really confused. 1) It seems a little late for Netflix to be up-and-coming, and 2) TFA is about Netscape. Hm?

Oh...
