Netscape.... sigh. 16 colour video cards...with well under 1mb of on board video ram. I still remember getting told not to put any games on my step father's computer so I installed X-wing and Tie Fighter anyways and just hid the folders using the good ol' dos command. many many years later I told him hahaha

remember when USR came out with the X2 chip and it was going to make things so much faster!
