One More Small Business Portal: Netscape

Is there really room for one more small business portal? Established competition from Microsoft, Excite and Dow Jones isn't enough to scare executives at Netscape.

The company has created 'Netscape Netbusiness' as a way to reach small businesses with less than 10 employees.

One way Netscape plans to support the site is through advertising. Netscape believes it will retain an edge with support from its parent, AOL, along with advertisers already on board, including Kinkos and ADP.

The site's features include the ability to build an online business card and participate in various communities.
