Now rumored to be owned by Microsoft, AOL apparently sold
the division to MS at the same time as the patent sales.
AOL still owns what little remains of the former Netscape. Type netscape.com into your browser Location Bar
and it re-directs to your local AOL content portal site. In my case, it goes to AOL.co.uk. The only bit of AOL
that still retains Netscape branding is the Netscape Internet Service (isp.netscape.com) the homepage of
which carries a "Copyright © 2012 AOL Inc. All rights reserved." copyright message.
The last Netsape branded web browser was Netscape Navigator 9, which was little more than a rebranded
version of Firefox with a few extra features added, which made it a slightly better choice than Firefox itself

There's nothing friendly about that ui.. touch or otherwise.
That was back in early 1995 when Netscape was the only
browser worth having at the time, and just
before Microsoft acquired the rights to a NCSA Mosaic based browser called . . . Internet Explorer.
