    Hi there

    amazing that the USA still uses it !!!! Usually anything not invented in the US "Doesn't exist". !!!
    Well the Internet was invented by the US. It was a DARPA (defense advance research project agency) project - ARPANET.

    the original Web was dumb terminal menus to select documents across the internet with hypertext markup language invented by TBL and company at CERN. It didn't take off big until the first graphical browser, Mosaic, which was also of US origin - NCSA in Illinois. Netscape, which evolved into Firefox, was a derivative of Mosaic.

    I remember when TBL, early on, gave a talk about www. We discussed it, weren't confident it would take off! But you know it wasn't just www and hypertext that enabled it, it was evolving GUI interfaces an many other things from around the globe.

    Yes, Netscape released its code to Mozilla, which started the work towards Firefox. Of course Firefox rewrote Netscape with gecko and Firefox only has that tenuous root in Netscape.

    I remember netscape. I also remember having a modem that was only 4600bps. Before we discovered cable the only way to get online where I lived was 56k dial up modem. life in those days was slow and I was just a young boy.
