Whatever Happened to the Netscape Hype?

Monday September 21st, 1998

George Giannukos writes in with an interesting question:

"I remember those days when Netscape's servers would be overwhelmed with traffic of people trying to get their copy of the newest most popular application on the net.

Nowadays you see Netscape doing all these little updates with small enhancements...

So I guess my question is, 'Why is this happening and do ya'll think Netscape 5.0 will stop this trend?'"

WOW! Lots of stuff to improve and whatnot. Both of you really should check out the status updates page and other items on, while this is heavy on the developer end, lots of the stuff has been fixed. As far as requests for standards and other items, you should definatly check out binaries of 5.0 and of NGLayout, as there is an incredable difference between them and 4.0.
