Time Magazine Article on Mozilla

I guess so called 'geek features' like tabbed browsing and pop-up blocking aren't so geeky afterall. Check out a scan of the print version and read the article over on Time.com."


#21 Browser history

It's great that major media like Time is noticing Mozilla (even if it *is* owned by AOL), but he got a few things wrong in the history of browsers. As has already been pointed out, he seemed to imply that MSIE preceded Netscape. Also, it was *not* true that Mosaic was the only browser around in its time or even that it was the first Web browser. The first Web browser was Tim Berners-Lee's "WorldWideWeb" for the NEXT machine; a line-mode browser followed, and others such as Lynx and Cello (which was fully graphical) followed. Mosaic was just the first to be noticed by less-geeky types, and to make a big splash in the news media.
