In the year of 1994, Steven Sinofsky, president of the Windows wrote an email to  the  cello:
"We do not currently plan on any other client software [in the upcoming release of Windows 95, especially something like Mosaic or Cello."
At the begining Cello was being downloaded at a rate of 500 copies per day
When released in 1993,
Cello was the only browser for the Microsoft Windows platform.

Mosaic was the web browser which led to the Internet boom of the 1990s 

Development of Mosaic began in December 1992.
 Versions 0.1–0.9 were the first developed and released.
 Version 1.0 was released on April 22, 1993, followed by two maintenance releases during summer 1993.  Version 2.0 of NCSA Mosaic was released in December 1993, along with version 1.0 releases for both the Microsoft Windows.
An Acorn Archimedes port was underway in May 1994.[citation needed]

Microsoft bought the webbrowser from spyclass for 2million  $

Microsoft modified the spy glass and and renamed it as internet explorer of first vertion released in the market

There is an dispute arrise between microsoft and spyglass ,microsoft pays 8  millon u.s $..

                          TILL IE 6 THE PROGRAM  IS BASED ON"MOSAIC CODE"

*  In case for  Internet Explorer 7 were audited by Microsoft to ensure that it contained no Mosaic code, and there is no credits for spy glass and mosaic

                               There is hot thing present in  Mosaic was the first browser written and supported by a team of full-time programmers, which was reliable and easy enough for novices to install, and the inline graphics proved immensely appealing. Mosaic made the Web accessible to the ordinary person for the first time.

                   Ultimately, web browsers such as Mosaic became the killer applications of the 1990s because they were the first programs to provide a multimedia graphical user interface to the Internet's burgeoning wealth of distributed information services........

Mosaic's popularity of the mosaic loss when the release of Andreessen's Net scape navigator in the year-1994

there is another intresting thing -mosaic is written in c-language
