2. Surf the Web > 2.9. The Mozilla Web Browser

The Mozilla Web Browser

Although Konqueror is the default web browser on the Move CD, there is another web browser on the CD as well. This browser is called Mozilla.

Longtime web surfers may remember the company Netscape and its flagship web browser, Netscape Navigator. When Netscape lost the browser wars with Microsoft, it open-sourced its web browser in 1998. That means that all the code for that previously proprietary program became available for anybody in the world to use—and hopefully improve. Since that time, a group of developers has been working on creating a new and innovative browser from the original Navigator source code. This project took a lot of turns, including a ground-up rewrite, but eventually produced the Mozilla Suite, an all-in-one Internet application with a web browser, email client, newsgroup reader, and web page composer.
