Did you know that a 21-year-old undergraduate ignited the world wide web revolution? Marc Lowell Andreessen was an intern at NCSA and a student at UIUC when he started developing Mosaic. He started the project in 1992 and NCSA released it the year after. Mosaic was easy to use and introduced the World Wide Web to the public. "Several million then suddenly noticed that the Web might be better than sex," said Internet co-inventor Robert Metcalfe in 1995. Can you believe it? Andreessen just reached the legal age to drink but he was on his way to a career that would make him a billionaire. So what's your excuse?
His invention made Andreessen a big name in his field, but his browser failed to improve and compete with the changing times. Mosaic soon become obsolete with the arrival of better browsers. Microsoft's Internet Explorer became the preferred choice as the fastest browser for computers in the 2000s. Google Chrome was the staple browser for mobile Android devices in this decade. Nowadays there are different types of browsers for every need. There are browsers for speed, like the Naked Browser. And there are browsers for protection and privacy like Brave. Still, Andreessen's influence in the world of global communication is undeniable. He is a board member in Facebook, eBay, Hewlett-Packard, Bump Technologies, and gaming giant Oculus VR. And remember, this guy started all this world wide web revolution with his Mosaic browser. A program he invented before he even got his undergraduate diploma.
