Netscape Abandoned

Computing Services Information Document PC/Windows

General Information

On December 28, 2007, AOL announced that Netscape would be officially abandoned, with no further development or support, as of February 01, 2008. As of version 8.x, Netscape already no longer included an email client, leaving Netscape email users without needed security fixes (Netscape Messenger v9 never made it out of "alpha" testing).
As such, we recommend the use of Thunderbird (or SeaMonkey) instead.
WARNING: Due to a number of security alerts and the lack of any support, we DO NOT RECOMMEND use of Netscape for any purpose, including email or web browsing.
