After the recent announcement about the future of My.Netscape, there have been a number of questions posed to our feedback channels. We thought it best to assemble answers to as many of the questions as possible in a Q&A format. Without further ado:


Question: I still use Netscape 7.0, 7.1 or 7.2. Will the change on September 1st affect Mail and newsgroups, address book, download manager and password manager?

Answer: The change on September 1st relates to the My.Netscape service. Netscape 7 browser features listed above are not reliant on My.Netscape to operate. However, please note that official support for Netscape browsers has ended.

Question: I still use Netscape 7 (or Netscape 8, or Flock) - where can I go to find my @netscape.net e-mail, given the upcoming changes to My.Netscape?

Answer: Netscape mail can still be found at: http://mail.netscape.com

Question: I am using Netscape as my browser on Windows 98. What will I need to do on September 1st about e-mail?

Answer: Netscape recommends Flock and Firefox browsers for all those wanting a current web browsing experience. Netscape mail can be and will be found at: http://mail.netscape.com

Question: I switched to Flock when official support ended for the Netscape Browser. What will I have to do on September 1st?

Answer: Flock will continue to operate after September 1st. If you have saved preferences with the My.Netscape service, you will need to find a new provider for things such as stock portfolios or bookmarks.

Question: I am using Netscape 7 (or Netscape 8, or Flock, or Firefox) - will my My.Netscape bookmarks be transferred as Favorites in my browser?

Answer: No, My.Netscape bookmarks are not automatically transferred to your browser. You will need to re-enter your bookmarks with a new service.

Question: Will this move require me to sign up with AOL?

Answer: No, Netscape.aol.com can be viewed without having to sign into AOL.

Question: Will Netscape.aol.com allow me to customize the content on my page, the way My.Netscape did?

Answer: My.Netscape is what is known as a "personalized start page," which Netscape.aol.com is not. Other start pages include My Yahoo and Netvibes. To customize the content on your page, you will need to migrate to another service.

Question: Will I still be able to use my @netscape.net e-mail address after September 1st?

Answer: Yes. Netscape mail will still be available at: http://mail.netscape.com as before. You will not need to change your e-mail address because of the changes to My.Netscape.

Question: What will happen with the portfolios I set up on My.Netscape after September 1st?

Answer: You will need to recreate your portfolio information on another service. My.Netscape is what is known as a "personalized start page". 

Question: After September 1st, what will become of the bookmarks I created on My.Netscape? Will they be imported to http://netscape.aol.com, or somewhere else?

Answer: Bookmarks will not be automatically imported to another service. Please take this time to migrate your bookmarks to a new provider of your choice.

Question: How do I migrate My.Netscape to a new provider?

Answer: There is no automatic way to do this. You would need to sign up for an account at a new provider and then use that service to re-enter any preference information you had on My.Netscape. It is strongly recommended that you do this before September 1st, while My.Netscape is still available to refer to.

Question: Does this mean that the Netscape ISP (also known as Netscape Connect, or Walmart Connect) is shutting down?

Answer: No. The Netscape ISP (Internet Service Provider) will continue to operate, and be unaffected by the changes to My.Netscape. The Netscape ISP service line is 1-866-541-8233.

Question: I'm using an older system and would like a recommendation for a new service that would work with my system.

Answer: We're sorry, we are unable to provide any specific recommendations for a new service to use after My.Netscape.

Question: Does this affect me using the Netscape Browser?

Answer: Yes, official support for the Netscape Browser has ended.

Question: When My.Netscape switches to Netscape.aol.com on September 1st, will Netscape.aol.com be a free service, or will there be a fee to access it?

Answer: Netscape.aol.com will continue to be a free service.

What Netscape’s Founder Thinks About the New Google Browser

AOL updates AIM Express, Windows Mobile Messenger

Criticism faced by Netscape

At 37, Andreessen is a legend in Silicon Valley. He created, with Eric Bina, the first graphical browser while at the University of Illinois, then co-founded Netscape Communications with ├╝berentrepreneur Jim Clark in the early 1990s. Netscape’s browser brought the internet to the masses, set off the dotcom boom, and so angered Microsoft at the time that Steve Ballmer, now the software giant’s C.E.O., led employees in “Kill Netscape!” chants. By bundling its Internet Explorer browser into Windows, Microsoft eventually drove Netscape into the arms of a suitor: AOL bought Netscape in 1999 for $4.2 billion.Andreessen hasn’t had a success of that magnitude since. But he did create another billion-dollar company, Loudcloud, a tech-services outfit that later changed its name to Opsware and was sold to Hewlett-Packard for $1.6 billion. More recently, Andreessen started Ning, a website that lets anyone create a mini social network. Its most prominent customer: 50 Cent. Andreessen joined Face­book’s board this year, invested in Twitter, and generally manages to show up on the front end of new technology trends. His blog, Blog.pmarca.com, has been a tech-industry must-read, in part because he’s willing to be brutally outspoken. In February, Andreessen ignited emotions when he blogged that he was starting a “New York Times Deathwatch.”

Netscape 8.1 offers built-in spyware and adware protection that scans files that Web users try to download as well as those that are sent to them without their interaction, according to a representative for Netscape, a division of Time Warner's America Online subsidiary. The updated browser will also let consumers run complete memory and disk scans.

Other security features include an updated blacklist of potential phishing sites and a security centre people can access to see if they need to take action on their computer.

Netscape's move to increase security features comes as malicious attackers are increasingly targeting browser flaws, includingvulnerabilities found last spring in Netscape's browser.

The latest version of the browser also offers updates designed to enhance its RSS support. RSS feeds, for example, can be viewed within the browser rather than requiring a separate viewer.

In addition, a new profile manager is designed to let multiple Web users share the same browser but maintain different bookmarks, passwords and other customisations.
