Before the popularity of Microsoft’s Internet Explorer and Mozilla Corporation’s Firefox web browser, Netscape first dominated the web browsing arena. It was formerly known as the Netscape Communications Corporation that was established in 1994. It offered an extensive line of client and integrated computer applications software for commerce and communications over the Internet and private IP or Internet protocol networks.
Netscape’s most popular product during that time, which is the Netscape Navigator, became the leading web browser that allowed individual computer system units to trade information and conduct commerce over the Internet. It offered enterprise with basic capabilities for the creation and operation of web servers, sites, and other places on the Internet which browsers could visit.
