<q>Mosaic used to be the predominant web browser before Netscape came along.</q>

Bad comparison. The dominant Mosaic was written by the same programmers as the dominant Netscape, of course. Remember that the company Netscape would have been the company Mosaic if UIUC hadn't objected (reportedly - Netscape folks or UIUC folks who come across this posting should feel free to correct me if necessary). When NS came out, everyone using Mosaic knew that Netscape was Mosaic with the sports package. Anyway, Mosaic was in many ways a proof-of-principle rather than a commercial product; one can speak of Mosaic competing with say Cello, but not of Mosaic competing with Netscape.
