What is the first browser used?

mosaic browser,types of browser - Mosaic Browser:
Mosaic. Marc Andreessen and Eric Bina from the NCSA released the first version of Mosaic for X-Windows on Unix computers in February, 1993. A version for the Macintosh was developed by Aleks Totic and released a few months later, making Mosaic the first browser with cross-platform support. Mosaic introduced support for sound, video clips, forms support, bookmarks, and history files, and quickly became the most popular non-commercial web browser. In August, 1994, NCSA assigned commercial rights to Mosaic to Spyglass, Inc., which subsequently licensed the technology to several other companies, including Microsoft for use in Internet Explorer. The NCSA stopped developing Mosaic in January 1997.

So far I had in my mind that Internet Explorer is the first browser used in the net. Occasionally I searched for the browser history and I found lot of browsers were used in the past and Internet Explorer is the recently developed browser only that too after the Mozilla fire fox.Have you ever used the old browsers and how was the browsing experience? Please refer if you want to know the history of such browsers here: http://www.livinginternet.com/w/wi_browse.htm.

There are site statistics for January 2009 on who is using what browser on this page here:- http://www.bukisa.com/articles/38786_real-web-site-statistics-web-browsers-who-uses-which-browser You will see that Internet Explorer has 66% of the market and 25.5% of visitors used Firefox. Also interesting to see is that one visitor still uses IE v2.0!! That must be one old computer!!

The first browser I ever used, as with most people I guess, was Internet Explorer, although I did often dally with Netscape Navigator. I've tried others including Opera, and Safari when using my wife's Mac. I currently use Firefox, although I'm just about to start using one based on the LCARS interface from STAR TREK, which looks absolutely fantastic.

Today there is huge list of the browsers but in early times i think the first browser was the netscape as from some of my ideas before that browser some browsetrs where like working with commands which was very difficult to work on and only suited for the masters of computers
