Internet Explorer 1
It is interesting to note that Microsoft picked up the version numbering scheme where NCSA Mosaic left off rather than actually christening this version 1.

Microsoft Explorer dropping out using WIN 7/32(Sp1)
You forgot one thing .... it wasn't either ... :(
You are absolutely correct - Firebird before it was called FireFox (due to trademark which they had to change it in Mozilla.org which now is Mozilla.com).
Back then in the beginning - there were only 3 browsers:
And all were under dial up - the speed load up is according to my end:
1) AOL - 9 Mbps
2) IE - 8.1 Mbps
3) Nut - 4.8 Mbps - and often caused me to be booted and lose the page; deleted it
TODAY - running at 1.0 Gbps
Up time - no O/C (overclocking):
1) IE 9 (E - "enhanced" - but with quite a few features disabled) - 123.89 Mbps
2) FF 13.0.1 (still crashing after BETA) - 142.01 Mbps
3) MSN - ? - (Blue Screen Every Time!) - clocked at 98.7 Mbps
4) DNS/IP (my provider's) - 151.9 Mbps
Down Time (for downloading)
1) IE 9 (E) - 223.33 Mbps
2) FF (13.0.1) - 279.04 Mbps (but crashes)
3) MSN - can't use it due to Blue Screen
4) DNS/IP - 288.46 Mbps (they run on low encryption so I avoid this unless it is VIP)
How's that for a huge dramatic change over the decades from the beginning since dial up to the latest up-to-date technology since IPv6 (6over4) - part of it has a lot to do with the Military Bases and Headquarters which surrounds me; who demands the fastest and highest speeds of everything as it is imperative; with all due respect to Military and Feds all over the place.
Before you know it - we will be running at Giggle-bytes per a second! (LOL! I love calling that .... "Gigglebytes" :-D - got to love it!)
