According to this PCWorld article, HP will be shipping the Netscape 8 browser on HP PCs starting early next year. There will be shortcuts to the browser on Windows XP Start menu and desktop. Users will also be able to select Netscape as their default browser when setting up a new HP PC.

I would wonder why HP wouldn’t include something like Mozilla Firefox, but then again, the article does say that “Netscape also is providing a financial incentive for HP to distribute the browser”…
