Hmm. I beta'd Warp in summer '94. I don't think Netscape was even at 1.1
then. Plus IE was released with Win95, in September 1995, and wasn't much
of a product then. I remember distinctly nobody caring about IE until 3.x

Everybody had been waiting for Netscape to release for OS/2, even after I
stopped using OS/2 at the end of 1996. Also, there was distinct resentment
on the part of loyal OS/2 users when it finally DID get released, because
Netscape was at 3.x and the OS/2 version would only be 2.02 and thus not
support Java.
