Twenty years ago this month (December) , Tim Berners-Lee created and tested the very first Web browser, WorldWideWeb. To commemorate this anniversary, let’s take a look back through the main Web browser launched from 1990 to 2008 .
ViolaWWW was the first Web browser for the Unix-based X Windowing System.
Lynx 2.0 (1993)
NCSA Mosaic 1.0 (1993)
NCSA Mosaic brought the WWW to the general public’s attention, thanks to its ease of use, its presence on Windows and Macintosh platforms (Unix XWindows version shown here), and its ability to display images inline with text.
IBM WebExplorer (1994)
Netscape Navigator 1.0 (1994)
Microsoft Internet Explorer 1.0 (1995)
Netscape Navigator 3.0 (1996)
Opera 2.0 (1996)
KDE Konqueror (2000)
Konqueror, both a Web browser and a file manager, debuted with the KDE 2 desktop environment for Unix-like systems in 2000. Its open-source rendering engine, KHTML, later became the basis for Apple’s Safari Web browser.
Microsoft Internet Explorer 5 for Mac (2001)
Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 (2001)
Netscape 7 (2002)
Mozilla Phoenix 0.1 (2002)
Apple Safari Public Beta (2003)
Mozilla Firefox 1.0 (2004)
Google Chrome Beta (2008)
As if Google didn’t control enough of the Web already, in 2008 the search behemoth decided to release its own Web browser.
