Transcript of Browser Wars
Explorer Firefox A brief background,
competitors, and current state Netscape had released the source code for their browser, and the Mozilla Foundation created Firefox out of it. The first browser war was between Netscape and Internet Explorer in 1995. Safari Opera "But all was not lost, for from the ash rose a great bird. The bird gazed down upon the unbelievers and cast fire and thunder upon them. For the beast had been reborn with its strength renewed, and the followers of Mammon cowered in horror."
Naviagtor Netscape died on March 1, 2008. During this time, both sides:
Created their own standards (which created a headache for developers)
Added new features instead of fixing bugs Of course, all these new features inadvertently created security vulnerbilities. Microsoft then decides to bundle Internet Explorer with Windows. It still does that today. It was known for introducing features such as tabs and mouse gestures. But it wasn't free. More and more people started using it, and its usage peaked and stabilized in 2010. Interesting enough, this was a necessity. Microsoft had discontinued Internet Explorer for Mac on June 3, 2006. Microsoft, which was still "asleep" on version 6,
awoke and retaliated. "Mammon awoke, and lo! it was naught but a follower."
from The Book of Mozilla, 11:9 (10th edition) Internet Explorer 7.0 was released on October 18, 2006.
It copied many features that were already well-known in Firefox and Opera, such as tabs. It merged the search bar with the address bar.
Another notable feature is that it isolates each tab in its own process. Meanwhile... A stable version for Windows was released on March 18, 2008. Compared with other browsers, Internet Explorer didn't really stick to web standards.
It was only now that Microsoft started working on it. It finally passed the Acid2 test in version 8.0.
It was the last browser to do so. So far, Internet Explorer (IE) is still winning... But the beginning of its end has begun.
