Bye-Bye Netscape Web browser

Everything in this world has an end and similarly, it looks that end of once know as big competitor to Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE) and a popular web browser, Netscape is near because AOL, parent company of Netscape, has decided to withdraw all supports available for the Netscape web browser from 1st of Feb 2008. In simple words, we can say that AOL is leaving Netscape web browser behind for its slow death. In Market share term in the web browser market, Netscape can be declared already dead because its market share as compared to other players like IE, Firefox, Safari, Opera etc has decreased even below 1% in recent years.

Launched in 1994, Netscape was one of the few first explorers available with people for exploring various websites. In 1999, AOL bought Netscape and tried to give it a new life. Once Netscape web browsers was believed as big player in web browser market and also a competitor for the Microsoft’s Internet Explorer (IE), however, in this battle IE really emerged as big winner with more than 80% share. Next big player is this segment is Firefox from Google, which has market share of 14%, but good news for Firefox is that its market share is constantly increasing.

Many people believe that lack of innovation is one reason why Netscape web browser failed to compete despite having long history and good service track record. People can still use the present or old version of Netscape for web browsing but they need to remember that there will be no official help available to them after 1 Feb 2008 onward.

Is it right to use Movies to score Politics? #AccidentalPrimeMinister

India is a country of controversies and we keep on seeing newer and newer controversies emerging daily. Some controversies die fast while others continue for years. The recent controversy is about the Anupam Kher's latest movie "Accidental Prime Minister" in which he is playing the role of formal Prime Minister of India Manmohan Singh. 

This controversy emerged with the release of the trailer of movie Accidental Prime Minister. The Congress party blames that this movie is made to spoil the image of Gandhi family while Anupam Kher claims that his movie is based on the book written by Baru Sanjaya whose role is played by Akshay Khanna in the movie. 

Mostly in India, we see politics on the single line that "I am right and you are wrong". The focus of all political parties is more on proving others wrong than proving themselves right. They want your votes not because they are right but because others are wrong. In such kind of politics, we hardly see right things pro…

Alert for E-mail users

Dear all e-mail users, I want to request you to remain alert while using our email accounts and avoid responding or accepting number of reward or money sharing schemes offered in your mailbox. In the recent times, numbers of Indians have become the victim of these frauds due to their ignorance and somewhat greed. Numbers of criminal organisations mainly settled in poor African countries are behind these frauds. Recently, RBI has also issued security alert in this matter. However, still large numbers of people are not aware about these kinds of frauds and become the victim of them. Most of victims receive mails 1) telling them that they have won a lottery with automatic email draw 2) a person want to share some fortune with you 3) a widow needs your help for getting money 4) a bank employee of foreign bank needs your assistance in money transfer and number of other new and realistic methods created on the daily basic. Target of these mails are mostly new online users who have no knowle…

Book Review-“Living with the Himalayan Masters”

India holds a great history behind it which is full of many cultures, traditions, religions and wisdom, however, today the major problem with most of the youth of India is that it is forgetting the importance of ancient India cultures. One of the major attractions of our culture is life lived by great mystics and masters in Himalayas. From many centuries, this tradition is very much prevalent in India according to which people go to Himalayas for becoming one with higher conscious.

These great masters and mystics follow the path of renunciation (leaving comforts and pains of world both mentally and physically). We all must have heard number of stories associated with these great masters, however, due to lack of information and knowledge we mostly find it hard to know the real truth. For an ordinary person, it is very difficult to exactly know or understand the life of our saints and masters. Most of the time, these people are believed as mad, psychics, frauds because we do not know or …
