Fortune has an extensive collection of first-person accounts on the tenth anniversary of Netscape’s IPO. “Picture a world without Google, without eBay or Amazon or broadband, where few people have even heard of IPOs. That was reality just a decade ago. The company that changed itbringing us into the Internet agewas a brilliant flash in the pan called Netscape. For the tenth anniversary of its IPO, FORTUNE recruited dozens of players to tell the story of the startup in their own words.”
The story brings alive the early days of the Internet era — and refreshed many memories of that period for me. Netscape, was after all, the poster-child and an inspiration for many like me who started out in 1994-95.
