    Cannot remember however I can remember using some of the earliest versions of Firefox. Since then, the version numbering has been going up incredibly fast - makes me feel old..

    Old Internet Explorer version. Tried the older Safari at that time too and preferred it but wasn't actually competent enough to download a new one until a year or two later.

    One of the oldest Pc's would be a very old pentium 3 (Maybe P2 Klamath). Loved the old cartridge type installs. Oldest networking equipment had like 16 sticks of memory and around 8MB of memory.


    The sad part is a lot of the browsers I use now still have poor multicore support after 16+ years.

    Also IE or Netscape - AOL were huge at that point, will never forget my little singing 56kbit box which I had to sit on if I was trying to sneak onto the PC late at night.

    I was going to say GEnie but I don't think there was really anything resembling a web browser it was more like a massive BBS. I did play the first multiplayer online game there, I think It was called megawars and 300 baud. Then I started my first BBS so I could cheat at TradeWars.

    Getting nostalgic here.

    Internet Explorer, still remember it like it was yesterday. Although it was 12 years ago.

    Netscape Navigator... 94 or 95. Was so glad when IE came and was free. Netscape was a huge scam... it was expensive!

    Internet Explorer. Cant recall the version now. At the time, even browsing the web was a huge task, so didn't bother with what browser to use. LOL

    Same here. Netscape Communicator I do believe
    It even had it's own special mail program, and (IIRC) a 'web design' suite
