All of the internet!

Here is a fun flashback Friday. 😀 That is a retail box for the new and improved Netscape Navigator 2.0, for Windows 95 and 3.1. Back in the day, if you were cruising the internet with Netscape 2.0 and Windows 95, you were getting things done!

25 years on, it’s crazy to even think about. People used to go to the store, to buy a browser (for $49!). There was a browser war. The blink tag was an innovation! But wait… it gets better!

I also have the manual, and the complete six disk set of floppies for install. As if the story wasn’t silly enough already. 😀 This is another fascinating example of how far computing and the internet have come over the past 25 years.
