What is NCSA Mosaic (browser)?

NCSA Mosaic was one of the very first web browsers in 1993.  It not only allowed for web pages to be downloaded and rendered on screen, but it was also supporting FTP and Gopher protocols.  NCSA Mosaic was the only browser that could display simple embed pictures on non-color QuickDraw Macintosh.  NCSA Mosaic shortly after was renamed to Netscape Navigator.

Mosaic for Mac is still listed for download on the official NCSA FTP:
