Poll: OT 1995 Edition: Netscape vs Internet Explorer (14 votes)

Netscape 64%
Internet Explorer 29%

Who wins? I'm going to go with Netscape due to logo and design.

Netscape by far. Right up until Netscape 4, anyway.

Hehe, I used those 30 days free trials back-to-back-to-back-to-back. I loved it.

@4myAmuzumament: But the question was which was better between the two posted choices. You don't answer a question about what is faster between a Mustang and a Camaro with "neither, because a Ferrari is faster than both of them," do you?

I sort of remember Netscape being good for porn but IE was my main browser for years until around 2005 when I made the change to Firefox.

I can't give an honest answer because I don't remember ever using Netscape. I didn't start using the Internet on a regular basis until 1999 and outside of Dreamcast's web browser I only used public computers with IE on them to surf. I didn't get my own personal computer until 2003 and I used the AOL and IE browsers on them.

I was still using DOS to play Commander Keen in '95.

Didn't even know the internet was a thing until about '99

I was only 3/4 at the time, and had no idea what an internet browser wasss

In 1995, we were using Mosaic. After that, it was Netscape until Internet Explorer 4 came along.
