I liked Netscape MUCH better than IE, to this day I use Firefox, I rarely use IE.

FIRST computer; 8088 with a 20MB HD(yeah 20MB), DOS 6, and a 1.2kb/sec dialup modem ...

First Windows computer had Win95 on a PB with a 3 GB HD, when I got the 768kB/sec DSL account it seemed smoking fast.

Netscape pretty much had the browser market cornered back in the 90's. The first thing I would do once a computer was setup and online, was to install Netscape. Loved it! Loved the internet back in the 90's as well. That era of the internet was what I called the "surfing" era. Back in those days, it was pretty safe to net surf. I could spend hours on Yahoo just surfing the web and seeing what cool websites I could stumble upon.

Nowadays, very dangerous to surf! There's just a handful of websites I visit on a daily basis, and hardly ever go out of the scope of those sites. Web surfing today is about as equivalent to going out after dark wearing body armor, cloaking device, while carrying a machine gun. And purchasing things off of the internet seems to be more and more limited to websites like Amazon.

But anyways, didn't mean to get off on that tangent. The original Netscape was cool and had some cool features with it.

I remember the first Netscape, you had to pay for it and use a floppy disk. I also remember those AOL chatrooms and how they had limits on every message . What a rip off!! We had a Mac Performa 405 . I tried IE but I disliked it and haven't used it in a decade , at least.
