And I Said, “That’s Good! One Less Thing.”

Web browser compatibility testing gets easier:

AOL LLC today pulled the plug on Netscape Navigator, the Web browser that once owned the lion’s share of the market and that was the focus of a landmark federal antitrust case against Microsoft Corp.

In an announcement posted to AOL’s blog for the browser, Tom Drapeau, the director of the company’s Netscape brand, said the team is ending development and would cease issuing security updates as of Feb. 1, 2008.

It gets easier to justify not testing Netscape, anyway. Because, let’s face it, the margin of error still using it will cling to it even though it’s not supported.

And let’s face it, you didn’t even know it was to Netscape 9 now, did you?
