Web Browsers From 90′s.


Twenty years ago this month (December) , Tim Berners-Lee created and tested the very first Web browser, WorldWideWeb. To commemorate this anniversary, let’s take a look back through the main Web browser launched from 1990 to 2008 .

 NCSA Mosaic brought the WWW to the general public’s attention, thanks to its ease of use, its presence on Windows and Macintosh platforms (Unix XWindows version shown here), and its ability to display images inline with text. 

IBM WebExplorer (1994)

 IBM broke into the Web browser field relatively early with the Mosaic-based WebExplorer, designed for the company’s OS/2 Warp 3 operating system. Critics hailed IBM’s browser.

 Norwegian company Opera Software released the first public version of Opera browser, version 2.0, for Windows in 1996.

KDE Konqueror (2000)

Web Browsers From 90′s
 Konqueror, both a Web browser and a file manager, debuted with the KDE 2 desktop environment for Unix-like systems in 2000. Its open-source rendering engine, KHTML, later became the basis for Apple’s Safari Web browser.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 for Mac (2001)

Web Browsers From 90′s
 With the coming of the Mac OS X operating system, Apple needed a new Web browser.

Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 (2001)

 The era of IE 6 marked the height of Microsoft’s browser dominance–as well as the height of its sloth and sloppiness in browser design.

Netscape 7 (2002)

Web Browsers From 90′s
 Facing dwindling market share, Netscape released much of its code as open source in 1998.

Mozilla Phoenix 0.1 (2002)

 From the ashes of the bloated Netscape and Mozilla Communications suites rose the lean and mean Mozilla Phoenix project.

Apple Safari Public Beta (2003)

Web Browsers From 90′s
 Internet Explorer 5 for Mac–the Mac OS’s default browser up to 2003–was a buggy, slow embarrassment compared with learner alternatives arriving at the time.

Mozilla Firefox 1.0 (2004)

Web Browsers From 90′s
 After enjoying years of popularity in its beta incarnations, Mozilla’s Firefox Web browser finally released as version 1.0 to great fanfare and impressive download numbers in 2004.

Google Chrome Beta (2008)



 As if Google didn’t control enough of the Web already, in 2008 the search behemoth decided to release its own Web browser.
