Seems everyone is talking about that right now. You got it right. According to the article (posted in Netscape blog), after February 1’st, AOL won’t be developing any further Netscape Navigator releases. The browser will be left on its own fate. Eh… Remember old times?
Netscape Navigator Market Share
It was the world’s most popular web browser and now its over. Internet Explorer will be next? I bet it will, I bet it will. If Microsoft will continue to use same “logic” while developing IE, someday you might see similar topic like this, just about Internet Explorer.
As for now, most of the current Netscape Navigator users will probably switch to Firefox and increase its market share.
That’s it. Check Netscape Navigator at Wikipedia if you want to remember old times.
