Netcaster

Netcaster is Netscape Communicator's push delivery system. It's basically a Web environment that is always active and can update its onscreen appearance without going to a new URL or reloading. Like all push mechanisms, Netcaster doesn't require the user to manually check for new content or sit through an update. It lets the developer put new content in front of users instead of hoping they come looking for it.
