What if Netscape had won? There's nothing particularly bad about the current state of browser technology--that is if you are frozen in a time warp, circa 1999. But for the rest of the Internet-surfing inhabitants of planet Earth, Internet browser design stopped being interesting years ago. That's simply because Microsoft no longer faces any challenge that forces it to innovate. If Microsoft were still trailing behind Netscape, Internet Explorer would be a far better product. That's what competition's all about. If the forward and back arrows constitute the last stage in Internet browser interface design, then we're an awfully sorry lot.
