Netscape reference in FreeBSD

Software

Netscape Navigator!A reference to Netscape still exists in the latest version of FreeBSD. How nostalgic ^_^.

You can use "whereis" to search standard binary, manual page and source directories for the specified programs. This can be particularly handy when you are trying to find where in the ports tree and application is.

Try "whereis netscape" and "whereis whereis"
— Konstantinos Konstantinidis

The last time I blogged about Netscape was back in 2007 when I was reviewing the final version for Mac OS X, shortly before it was discontinued for good.
