1.1. Browsers

The browser market is dominated by the two major browsers: Netscape Navigator and Microsoft Internet Explorer. As of this writing, Navigator is in version 4.0 and Internet Explorer is in version 5.0. Together, the "Big Two," including their collective past versions, account for approximately 90% (or more) of browser use today.

The browser landscape has been dominated by these two contenders as they battle it out for market dominance. Their struggle to be cooler than the next guy has resulted in a collection of proprietary HTML tags as well as incompatible implementations of new technologies (most notoriously Dynamic HTML, but also JavaScript and Cascading Style Sheets). On the positive side, the competition between Netscape and Microsoft has also led to the rapid advancement of the medium as a whole.
