Netscape was once the largest browser in general use on the Internet, until Internet Explorer cheated its way to being the top browser. Still, it did suck, so many people back in the 90's felt that the action of switching to an browser made by the evil scourge Microsoft was justified.
After Internet Explorer ended up at the top the company that made NetScape was bought by America Off Line, and things went downhill from there.
Netscape - really weird browser Edit
Netscape is a really weird browser, mostly due to the colours of some of it's version's menus. It is also weird because the company that owns it kept trying to update it when it was really out of date and unused.
