The Animation Contest Is Now Closed!

Thursday June 10th, 1999

The animation contest ended at 12:00 EST today. We didn't get as many entries as I expected, but the overall quality is much higher than in the previous contest. If you are finishing up an animation, we'll give you a little leeway - just get it into us quickly.

We still have one more public test of the survey code to do before we put up the animations for the final vote. That test will occur today or tomorrow, and the final vote sometime around the beginning of next week.

Thanks to all the entrants for their efforts!

No, actually the first throbber, which was included with the early "Mosaic Netscape" betas, was a white 'M' inside of a circle, with "folding panes" behind it. If you find some of these early Mosaic Netscape public betas (e.g. v0.90, 0.91, 0.92, or 0.93), check it out--I thought it was cool. In many ways, I think it was better than anything Netscape has now.
