A lot of people think that Intenet Explorer was the first Internet browser. It wasn’t. That title belongs to Netscape, which slowly crumbled as Internet Explorer’s popularity grew before eventualy dying out completely in 2008. Not that it really mattered at that point, since most of the Netflix team went on to Mozilla and the browser that eventually became Firefox.
A new infograpic charts the history of Internet browsers, for those of you are curious. What will you find? Internet Explorer and Firefox are more or less steady, as it Opera, while Google Chrome and Safari make very slow gains.
Oh, and you have the death of Netscape on the full image.
