In the beginning there was NCSA Mosaic, and Mosaic called itself NCSA_Mosaic/2.0 (Windows 3.1), and Mosaic displayed pictures along with text, and there was much rejoicing.

I've always wondered why every user agent string starts with Mozilla, and now I know. Fun read, too.

I lived though these user agent fights... not fun. Sucks. Things are kinda better? Javascript toolkits take care of most of the issues. But I don't JS client side that much anymore.
