Or simpler, and closer to the original intent: 

	dpkg --get-selections | grep 'netscape' | xargs dpkg --purge

Or, if you don't want the noise associated with purging bogus packages
named "install", "deinstall" ...:

	dpkg --get-selections | awk '/netscape/{print $1}' | xargs dpkg --purge

Note that this last is equivalent to:

	grep-status -P netscape | awk '/^Package: /{print $2}' | xargs dpkg --purge

but it doesn't require any non-standard packages.
