Netscape Navigator, also known as Netscape, was a proprietary web browser that was popular during the 1990s. Once the flagship product of Netscape Communications Corporation and the dominant browser in usage share, its user base had almost completely evaporated by 2002, partly due to the inclusion of Microsoft's Internet Explorer web browser with the Windows operating system, but also due to lack of significant innovation after the late 1990s.
Netscape wasn't the first browser, being inspired on Mosaic browser. But it was the one that made the world wide web popular.
Popular during the 90s! Back by popular demand? I don't think so. I remember using Netscape Navigator 1.0 (screenshot) on my Windows 3.11 for Workgroups install, back in 1995.
You can download old versions of Netscape as well on their archives, but only back to version 4.0.
