Netscape relaunch continues to draw backlash
First, a beta test of the "new Netscape" got panned by the digerati. Now, the harsh reviews are coming from longtime users of the site, says the Read/WriteWeb blog.

Last Thursday, after Netscape replaced its familiar news-weather-and-horoscopes homepage with a Digg-like site featuring user-selected headlines, fans of the old Netscape immediately began using the site's new interactive features to complain about the change and even to promote an online petition to bring the old Netscape portal back. Cleverest of all, a Netscape user found that a version of the old homepage is still available at isp.netscape.com. To Netscape's credit, Valleywag notes, the team of anchors overseeing the new Netscape site kept the negative headlines up and let the critics have their say.
