Death of an Icon

Netscape LogoAOL pulls the plug on Netscape Navigator, the early browser which more than 90% of Internet punters used in the mid-1990s. Powerful competition from Microsoft's Internet Explorer plus new competition from Firefox have reduced Navigator's share of the user-base to a mere 0.6%. Internet Explorer now hogs 80% of the browser market, while Firefox snaps at its heels with 16%. AOL will no longer support Navigator after 1 February 2008.
