just installed the mosaic web browser

Looks a little funny, huh? πŸ™‚

Mosaic is a very old web browser, though this is an updated version. πŸ˜€ I just felt like reliving the good old days. I sometimes use Mosaic to explore Gopherspace. Gopher is still out there, a little.

At least Mosaic has a decent throbber.

    it's not fair… you guys always lose me… what's a throbber ?so using old programs is a bit like me going to the fleamarket and buying old armchairs even though modern ones are morecomfortable…

  5. Firefox talks Gopher as well. But I agree it can be fun running old software. Especially when it's a piece of history like Mosaic.

    that's the best answer so far…so I did click on it…haven't yet mastered all things computer related… didn't know underlined meant click on it… just though it was underlined… as I underline stuff to make it stand out…you learn something every day…now I really do know what a "throbber" is…is that really the official computer word…or is it slang…

    It could count as both since I live in the U.S.A and everyone takes the word "throbber" wrong.
