THIS BROWSER GOES IT ALONE, AGAIN

FIRST YOU PUT IT TOGETHER. Then you take it apart. That's the strategy at Netscape Communications, which on Aug. 18 announced it would sell a stand-alone Internet browser once more. That move comes just two months after the company began shipping Communicator, a suite of products that includes a browser, E-mail, and collaboration software. Netscape Executive Vice-President Michael Homer says he may eventually split off the E-mail and collaboration products, too. For now, though, the browser war with Microsoft is on again.
