Farewell to Netscape

According to Wired, the browser Netscape will cease development in February 2008.

Now doesn’t that make you feel Web-1.0-all-over?

Gosh, I remember thinking how cool Netscape was — how the little comet went around the “N” in the icon as a Web page was loading …. and loading … and loading … on my hand-me-down modem.

Even though I haven’t used Netscape in years, why does this announcement make me feel sort of nostalgic and melancholy?
