I remember the old Netscape. It kept making my computer crash. Of course, I was using the notorious Windows ME at the time.

However, I love Firefox.

Netscape became Mozilla Suite, which then separated to Firefox and Thunderbird. I have use all of them since the beginning. I did prefer Internet Explorer until the Mozilla Suite came along.

Interesting note, around that time MicroSoft introduced a brower... a really cheesy thing call Internet Explorer. MS wasn't interested in further developing the thing claiming that the internet wasn't that big a deal.
Microsoft licensed the NCSA Mosaic browser source code, from which it created Internet Explorer. NCSA is where Marc Andreeson worked (part of U of Illinois, Champagne).

I've always thought for some reason the 'Mozilla' name came from Mosaic + Godzilla, meaning Mosaic on steroids.

I recall using Netscape eventually, but I used the weird Arachne browser and I think Opera before it.

Browsers were so unreliable and crashed like crazy back then.
