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.
It was actually called Mosaic Netscape for a time since the company
was originally called Mosaic Communications Corporation. Visit
http://www.mcom.com and see where it takes you! (Completely work safe,
I might add.) Now that's what I call long term domain name asset
management!

There seemed to be some fairly major differences between later
releases of Mosaic before NCSA pulled it (after licensing it to
various corporations) and Netscape Navigator - Navigator was threaded
even on Windows 3.1, and was clearly better supported on UNIX, Windows
and Mac. Still, it's amusing to consider Netscape 4.x and earlier as
having some common heritage with Internet Explorer.

As for Grail, it was certainly a "hot product" in the Python community
in 1995 because of the restricted execution environment which I
evaluated for a project involving mobile software agents. How
priorities and trends have changed since then! Who would have thought
that Microsoft Outlook would be the premier platform for mobile code?
