We all moved to Netscape from Mosaic because it was like ten times
faster. It wasn't as pretty but it was SO much faster. The original
Mosaic didn't do multiple simultaneous connections (i.e. to flesh out
the objects which were included on a single page) but Netscape did,
providing a tremendous performance advantage.
A performance advantage which disappeared completely when they
started implementing REALLY FUCKING STUPID
