I have tried many web browsers since my first internet experience. Internet Explorer (IE) is the first one I had used, because it is the default browser installed in my operating system. At the university, I start believing on the Linux revolution and in this period I discovered the Netscape browser which has been a serious alternative to IE. Netscape had lost his success and the usage share of Netscape browsers had fallen, between 1998 and 2002 (ref: Wikipedia).
