  • Netscape closure in HK fuels rumours Netscape will bow out of Australia

    Rumours that Netscape Communication's Australian operation is on the verge of closure have strengthened with the news that Netscape's office in Hong Kong has abruptly and quietly closed down. All that Netscape in Australia revealed by press time was that a change of business model will effect the way it sells products and services in Australia and in various territories around the world. According to a statement issued yesterday, details of the company's new local structure are unavailable, although Netscape has said that its worldwide professional services division will remain in Australia.
