You can buy a boxed version of all browsers. Netscape was free always,
and even before there was a netscape, the Netscape developers were working
on Mosaic, which was also free.
Now, had Netscape always given away their browsers, but had previously
patented the concept of clicking on a link, they we'ed be in trouble.
 Microsoft have patented the concept of embedding a button on a web
page, to start an application. They tryed to enforce it, and were told to
go shite. Lucky, huh ?
Microsoft. The best reason in the world to drink beer.
