Netscape Has Attention, If Nothing Else

Netscape has gotten mixed reviews for its recent Digg-style remake. The New York Times adds a story this morning about a petition from Netscape users to bring back the old site. We did a quick check and got traffic data update from Hitwise.

Hitwise says the Netscape site has seen a 17% increase from the week ending June 24 to the week ending July 15th. Given, that might largely come from the site’s recent media attention, but, hey, at least they’re getting attention, which is more than the Netscape brand had before.

We’ll check back on the data in a few weeks and see if the site is still growing. What do you think of Netscape’s new site?
