11 Years to the day: Net escapes command line interface

It's only 11 years ago: on December 15th, 1994 a startup called Netscape Communications launched version 1.0 of a browser called Netscape Navigator.

Tim Berners-Lee may have invented the browser, but Marc Andreesen and his pals gave it a GUI. Et la reste était litérature, the French would say at this point, were it not for the fact that their language effectively got marginalized by the same series of events.
