Crappy birthday Nutscrape 4!

Web standards evengelist Scott Andrew has gone off on one to celebrate the fifth birthday of Netscape Navigator 4.0.

Personally I’m not so sure it’s worth celebrating – Netscape 4.x has been the cause of many sleepless nights for many web designers/developers over the last five years. I remember thinking when IE 4.1.1 came out; “Asta La Vista, Netscape!”

But no – it wouldn’t smeg off and you still get the occasional Amish web surfer around today who insists on sticking with this god awful piece of software. For me, NN 4’s tenth birthday cant come quick enough – by then it should be nothing but horrible memory.
