NCSA Mosaic

Wikipedia viewed with Mosaic

This is [NCSA Mosaic](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mosaic_(web_browser\)), one of the first graphical web browsers. This version has barely been modified since the last official release, version 2.7 beta 6, in 1996. You may also be interested in Mosaic-CK and VMS Mosaic, which have been substantially improved from the original.

If you're on Linux, your time machine is fueled up and ready to go! Follow the instructions below to build and run.

Many thanks to Sean MacLennan and Alan Wylie for doing the heavy lifting. And, of course, hats off to Marc Andreessen, Eric Bina, and the rest of the NCSA team for kicking things off for us. Thanks!

Alan Dipert took the last release of Mosaic, put it on Github, and made some fixes. Tim Pizey modified it so that in-document javascript is not displayed.
