The New Netscape?

What the hell is so new about The New Netscape? Seems like they are offering the same slow, memory-hogging, program polluted browser as before, but now you are paying for a connection too! You say, “Well, it must be new, the word new is underlined”. Yow! Add to all of this a horrible Flash 4 style “program tour” that butchers up their brand and in the end has no real message to stand on, most certainly not one that would make you think you need their service. Even if their product was top shelf, you would never know it due to piss poor marketing and elementary design. This is a company that helped pioneer the internet; is this the best they can do?
