JanC:
But Netscape was largely based on Mosaic anyway; being developed by the
same developers. The beta I was talking about above still has a Mosaic
logo. ;-)
While it had many of the same developers, as I recall, none of the code was
shared. They were planning to call it Netscape Mosaic but that was
changed before the final release. Also, and again pulling out some old
memory here, Netscape paid UIUC a chunk of money just in case there
was some accidental copyright transfer because of not doing a pure
clean-room reimplementation. I think that was mentioned in the IPO
prospectus... but I'm not going to try and dig it up now.
