Netscape is the second most widely used browser

  • I haven't read this report yet, anything on the growth potential of Gopher or WAIS?



  • TRWTF is that you've read that far.

    (The remainder of the document is suprisingly good at describing a lot of common internet-related and other visible computer technologies.  Maybe I'll print it out for my mom...)

    It probably wasn't, but isn't it at least slightly possible that they was true in 2007? I guess by then Firefox probably was exceeding Netscape numbers by a good margin though...

    No. 🙂

    Also, Netscape Communicator wasn't a browser - that was the name of the suite of tools that included the browser, Netscape Navigator.

    Don't know about that but I keep reading about a possible resurgence of both VB5 and Forth.  If only I could find the references.

    Perhaps we should ask zzo38 :-0

    It's possible they were being lazy and counting FF as Netscape back then.

    I think thats SSDS you're thinking of.



  •  They probably reported that fact because Dubya only used IE and Netscape in his house. I bet Dubya always cursed Gore for doing a lousy job on the internets.



  • section 6.2 - Service Platform and Infrastructure Service Area

    has some very interesting ideas on the way the world works..



    Independent Platform – Defines the operating systems and programming languages able to
    execute and run on any platform or operating system. A platform is the underlying hardware and
    software comprising a system.
    Examples of Independent Platform technologies include:


    • Java 2 Platform Enterprise Edition (J2EE) – Sun’s J2EE and Microsoft’s .Net are the
    two dominant distributed computing architecture frameworks. J2EE provides portability of
    a single language (Java) over multiple operating systems and hardware platforms.


    • Linux – Linux is an open source operating system running on multiple hardware
    platforms. With the ability to run on many platforms, including the PC and Macintosh,
    Linux has become an alternative to proprietary systems.

    its like someone just took every buzz word from the past 10 years and jammed it into one thought, with no regard for meaning.



  • No, see, you're misinterpreting it. Mosaic was the first (most widely used browser), Netscape was the second one, and IE is the third and current.
