Well, I meant to post about this a couple months ago but better late than never.
September was the 20th anniversary of the release of Netscape Navigator 2.0 beta 1. For those who don’t remember, Navigator was the big dog of browsers in the 90’s until Internet Explorer steadily edged it out at the end of the decade. In 1995 Navigator had, roughly, 85% of the browser share on the Web. It was the browser to beat, and introduced a lot of new features and capabilities to web pages. Many give it credit for popularizing the internet. Back in 2007 PC World named it #1 on a list of 50 Best Tech Products of All Time.
