Prodigy licenses Netscape browser

Published on .

Prodigy Services Co. said it will offer its subscribers access to Netscape Communications Corp.'s Web browser within the next 60 days. Until now Prodigy members have been accessing the Internet through Prodigy's proprietary browser. The Prodigy announcement further cements the dominance of Netscape's product, which at more than 75% penetration is well on its way to being the standard.

Prodigy was the first online service to offer its members access to the Web. Other online services have followed suit but are still using their own browsers.

Streams Online Media Development, Chicago, said its Lilypad Web tracking tool is now commercially available. Lilypad tracks the effectiveness of Web hyperlinks by determining how users got to a particular site and when they came. The tool is targeted to ad agency media buyers and others who want to assess the performance of both paid and unpaid links. The software costs $695 per month plus a $500 installation fee.
