Celebrating our Sesquicentennial 1867-2017

In 1993 NCSA Mosaic broke away from the small pack of Web browsers on the market by boasting features like icons, bookmarks, an easy-to-use interface, and pictures. Soon more than 5,000 copies were being downloaded (free!) each month. Several Mosaic developers launched Netscape Navigator and more than 100 companies, including Microsoft, licensed the Mosaic software.
