into the fires

from "Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference (2nd Edition)" by Danny Goodman:

"…[Netscape] Navigator 4 has become a dead-end development platform, whose installed base will only decrease over time.

Despite the fact that some organizations have continued to standardize on Navigator 4 while waiting to migrate to a more modern browser platform, this edition of ‘Dynamic HTML: The Definitive Reference’ cuts the cord with the Navigator 4 past. If you need assistance and examples of scripting Navigator 4 DHTML, consult the first edition of this title."

and so Navigator 4, despite its well-intentioned efforts, was cast into the fires of perdition and forgetfulness. and a wave of joy spread across the land of web developers, as they rejoiced at the decline and eventual fall of their nemesis. and it was good.
