After laying off its Netscape developers 4 years ago, AOL has decided to hire a new team to resume development on a new version of its browser. Version 9 will be based on Firefox 2.0 and will be "integrated with" the netscape.com service. Is this anything to get excited about?
That's the opinion being expressed by fellow ZDNet blogger Richard MacManus on his Read/Write Web blog following the announcement that Pluck, a venerable browser-based RSS aggregator and reader, will cease operations after the first of the year. Richard suggests that the entry of big players like Google, Microsoft, Yahoo, and AOL/Netscape has doomed independent consumer readers like Pluck, Bloglines, and Rojo to extinction by acquisition or irrelevancy.

With all the posts regarding AOL's announcement of a new browser/e-mail/media player application today, I find it pretty interesting that no one apparently has tried to actually install this thing on their system. How else might you explain the fact that not one post I've read so far has mentioned that you must also agree to install AOL Desktop Search when you install OpenRide?

Looks like AOL has launched its newAOL Instant Messenger client , "Triton",at least in the US. Intriguing that they're using an "I AM"theme for their launch messages -- hasn't that been done before? Notjust by Lotus?Looking under the covers....new catch-upfeatures include easier audio/video chat and file transfer; tabbed IM UI,and chat history. The UI is cleaner and seems straightforward, thoughwhy AOL felt like they had to mess with the visuals of the existing emoticons,I don't know. The new emoticons are ugly. The whole UI feelsa lot slower, too.As is typical with AOL IM, a bunch ofnew crap was installed along with the AIM upgrade. The main one isa slow browser shell called AOL Explorer. I always love spendingten minutes undoing this stuff.AOL is more heavily promoting AIM Mailas a free mail service for AIM users. The marketing stuff emphasizesthat this mail service has an "unsend" feature. What theydon't say -- it only works with other AIM Mail users. Not real useful.Overall a worthwhile upgrade for a fewof the key features, but not a "wow". I'm sure I'll getasked somewhere in here why I don't use Trillian or whatever. Honestly,I'm content to have AOL IM be my only public IM service. I'm allergicto MSN, and while I've been using Skype more, its IM features are weakerthan the others. I guess it's simply that I'm focusing on one tooland don't need the distraction of others.

America Online is planning to release a stand-alone browser based on IE technology, according to sources familiar with the company's plans.
An AOL job listing indicates intentions to recharge its neglected portal and Web browser, and take Netscape in a "dramatically different direction."

Mozilla releases version 1.4 of its open-source browser, its last before switching to slimmer versions of the software. AOL also releases Netscape 7.1--based on Mozilla 1.4.
commentary I hate to be overly morbid or graphic, but Netscape actually died a long time ago. By the time AOL bought the company in 1999, the glory days of the Navigator browser were long over.
Phoenix, the new basis of AOL Time Warner's open-source browser, has undergone a name change to avoid a trademark dispute--again.
