Doing its damndest to prevent Microsoft Corp from walking away with the browser market that is currently Netscape’s own, Netscape Communications Corp yesterday moved to keep its developers loyal by giving away dozens of its business applications and development tools to corporate software developers working on intranets. Called AppFoundry, the program includes free access to fora by consulting firms such as Andersen Consulting and Deloitte & Touche, and an on-line gripe space called Netscape AppFoundry Online. Netscape has enlisted a host of software companies to provide their applications free for the program, including Acclaim Technology Inc, Red Oak Software Inc, Informix Corp and Sage Solutions Inc. Firms that will be making their development tools available for the AppFoundry program include Borland International Inc NetObjects Inc and NeXT Software Inc.
