Netscape Navigator

Definition - What does Netscape Navigator mean?

Netscape Navigator was the first commercially successful Web browser. It was based off the Mosaic browser and was created by a team led by Marc Andreessen, a programmer who co-wrote the code for Mosaic. Netscape Navigator helped influence the development of the Web into a graphical user experience rather than a purely text-based one.

Techopedia explains Netscape Navigator

In the 1990s, Netscape Navigator was on the leading edge of innovations in Web browsing. Among the many features that became standard after Navigator pioneered them are:

  • Displaying a Web page as it loads
  • Using Javascript to create forms and interactive content
  • Using cookies to keep session information

Despite its technical lead and its initial dominance of the consumer market, Netscape was eventually crushed by Microsoft during a period known as the browser wars.
