"Three out of four Web surfers now use Internet Explorer. But
Netscape hasn't given up the fight. ... While the company still
wants to grab back some of its lost market share in PC-based Web
browsers, this time the real battle will be fought over Internet
appliances, wireless devices and other gadgets that provide Web
access without a PC."
"...the fight for revenues in the second browser war - both
on PCs and new devices - involves fees for services, advertising
and e-commerce opportunities. The new Netscape browser, and
accompanying content and hardware deals, gives AOL a two-pronged
attack. On personal computers, the browser comes with a host
of features intended to lure non-AOL subscribers to AOL-owned
services like AOL.com, Instant Messenger, ICQ and Spinner.com."
"AOL is taking a different tack on Web appliances, giving
subscribers a new way to gain access to services they already use.
AOL-enabled devices, manufactured and cobranded by Gateway, include
gizmos for browsing the Net from a kitchen appliance, a wireless
pad and a simplified desktop computer. Linux - not Windows - is the
operating system for the new hardware."
