Living Can Kill You

Netscape 4 is five

My most favourite browser in the whole world is hitting its fifth birthday on June 11 as rediscovered thanks to Matt Haughey and as detailed in a Netscape press release from the time. That’s like 35 Internet years.

If you are still using that browser for day-to-day surfing, please upgrade. A world of opportunity awaits.

Just thought I’d share that as I struggle to get a page at Science Centre’s Web site working in Netscape 4.x.

Ironically—or perhaps coincidentally—my actual favourite browser’s birthday is scheduled to fall the day after Netscape 4.x’s fifth.
