NETSCAPE-NAVIGATOR

Posted by Balaji Srinivasan , Thursday, December 3, 2009 4:40 PM

Netscape webbrowser has the life cycle of 12years slowly -         disappeared in the year 2002 since from 1990

                Netscape Navigator was based on the mosaic web browser, which was co-written by marc andreessen

                Netscape announced in its first press releaseon 1994,
 it would make Navigator available without charge to all
 non-commercial users.

               Beta versions of version 1.0 and 1.1 were indeed freely downloadable in November 1994 .

         with the full version 1.0 available in December 1994. Netscape's initial corporate policy regarding Navigator is interesting, as it claimed that it would make Navigator freely available for non-commercial use in accordance with the notion that Internet software should be distributed for free.

                 An important innovation that Netscape introduced in 1994 was the on-the-fly display of web pages.
 where text and graphics appeared on the screen as the web page downloaded.
                  
                 Earlier web browsers would not display a page until all graphics on it had been loaded over the network connection; this often made a user stare at a blank page for as long as several minutes.......

IMPORTANTS:
* Netscape Navigator remained the market leader with more than 50% usage share.
The browser software was available for a wide range of operating systems, including Windows (3.1, 95, 98, NT), Macintosh, Linux, OS/2.
