Netscape, or Netscape Navigator, was the general name for a series of web browsers originally produced by Netscape Communications Corporation, now a subsidiary of AOL. The original browser was once the dominant browser in terms of usage share, but as a result of the first browser war it lost virtually all of its share to Internet Explorer. Its current version is 22.214.171.124. It is based on Gecko engine.
AOL announced that it discontinued Netscape and would cease support on February 1, 2008, however this was pushed back, and support for all Netscape browsers and client products was terminated on March 1, 2008.
