It has been a long road towards the end of Netscape.  Every worthy competitor deserves an honorable farewell.  Now that Netscape has announced the end of support for the Netscape browser, as of February 1, 2008, it is time to sound the bugle and offer the 21-gun salute.

Netscape is being laid to rest. 

Good night.
