I believe Mosaic had a throbber on the left-hand side that also acted as a Stop button. It was a stylised 'S' (as in NCSA). Netscape has always had throbbers on the right-hand side, starting initially with one based around an 'M' (it was called Mosaic Communications then) in a circle with coloured blocks (they rotated during data transfer). By the time of the first 1.0 release, legal reasons meant that it was now a rather dull blue 'N' that raised to become embossed and then sunk back into the screen. The shooting stars throbber debuted in 1.1. It was restyled for 4.0 (the animation became faster and the throbber reduced in size), but I always preferred the previous version. I love Netscape 6's throbber though. Very cool.
