How to Remove Netscape Navigator

Netscape Navigator was the king of web browsers in the early days of the World Wide Web. However, a targeted promotional push from Microsoft ensured that Internet Explorer would eventually take Netscape's place at the top of the heap. Netscape began to fall into obscurity until its discontinuation by parent company AOL in 2008. Uninstall Netscape Navigator from your system if you have selected a more recent web browser and have decided to discontinue using Netscape.
