Firefox turns 5
Five years on this Mozilla Foundation released Firefox 1.0 to public, a major new product since Mozilla Suite (then known as Mozilla Application Suite, now known as Seamonkey) first released in June 2002. The major difference between Firefox and Mozilla Suite? Firefox is just the web browser. Later Mozilla Foundation created a Mozilla Corporation, and dropped the development of Mozilla Suite (Seamonkey).
Back then, SillyDog701 was focused on Netscape. Netscape (browser) was not dead yet. Netscape 7.2 was the latest Netscape browser, and Netscape Browser Review Program (Netscape 8) surfaced to air a week later.
The support forum - SillyDog701 Message Centre was of course focused on Netscape browser's development. Mozilla shifts its focus on Firefox, but SD701 did not fellow Firefox that closely.
Well, Netscape 8, a browser that has two engines, both Internet Explorer and Firefox engines did not success. The idea was very good personally I believe as it allows users to browse almost every site on the web without facing any issues. Somehow people don't like that idea.
For the record, I started hosting Netscape Browser Archive since July 1999, and it has been a bit over 10 years now.
