My Netscape rocks

Congrats to “my” team at Netscape who released a new version of My Netscape. Of course some of the Web 2.0 kids who were in diapers and/or high school when Netscape was a force falsly claimed that Netscape “stole” the idea for MyNetscape from some of the AJAX start pages out there.

Dave Winer corrects them, reminding them that My Netscape was the original customizable, RSS page. Don Loeb confirms, as does Susan Mernit. I’m so happy there are folks who will step in when the digg/Web 2.0/blog mob starts attacking people.
