Description

Netscape is Bill Gates' most dangerous competitor. Like Microsoft in its earlydays, Netscape started off in 1994 as a bunch of young, cheeseburger-eating programmers sleeping under desks, before transforming itself into a global comm-ercial enterprise of 600 employees and sales of $81 million. The company's stock was offered at $28 a share in August 1995, but rocketed to $58.25 at the close of trading, making Netscape one of the most successful flotations on Wall Street. This book tells the remarkable story of how Netscape began, and how it emerged as the greatest challenger to Microsoft in little over 2 years.show more
