  • Netscape closes Brazil office

    Netscape is closing its office in Brazil as part of a reorganisation, according to Carmine Barone, general manager of the Brazilian Netscape subsidiary. The closure last week came at the same time as the announcement that America Online was planning to acquire Netscape in a stock-for-stock transaction worth $US4.2 billion. Barone said he felt the AOL deal played a part in the closure.
