The company said it would begin notifying users Friday that it was terminating the product, which it has been beta testing since January.
GoEverywhere was an experimental "Webtop" service designed to give users a single point of access to their different Web-based applications. Users could sync up different files from services such as Zoho and Google Docs, save passwords, and manage different Web programs all from a single Web site.
The project was one of the first to emerge from Symantec's new in-house technology development group, known as Incubator, but it didn't last long after the company switched CEOs in April. Neither did the head of Incubator, Art Wong, who had been with the company since its 2002 acquisition of SecurityFocus. Wong left the company last Friday, Symantec said.
A company representative could not give a reason for Wong's departure. He could not be reached for comment on this story.
Although Wong's departure raises questions about the future of Incubator, Symantec President and CEO Enrique Salem said Thursday that he had not shuttered the effort, but merely reined in some of the Incubator products launched before he took over. "What you do with an incubator is you place some bets and you do a review and you say, 'What do you think the long-term bets are going to be?'" he said. "We tried four or five things, we picked two to go forward with, and we'll fund some other new things to put in the incubator."
