Attending Shakeel Ali’s class is a unique experience apart from the “geek stuff” he teaches. He is a repository of many interesting & authentic facts about computer languages. I was lucky to have heard one of those interesting trivia on the rise and fall of Netscape Navigator.
Long long time ago there was a browser war.

Many multinational companies were its clients and the best minds in the browser industry worked with it.
