Has AOL Ruined Netscape?

Coldraven That's Why It's Called Big Business (245 comments)

AOL's handling of Netscape is typical of any quick merger; by exploiting the track record of a smaller company's "cutting-edge" product, a larger interest will generally view their latest "partner" as a commodity. Apart from its browser, Netscape was most likely purchased in order to serve as part of AOL's research department. The extra cache of their trademark and logo, with Marc Andreesen's press coverage were lucky accidents which helped to sweeten the deal.
