The Internet Explorer Story: Part 4
Play • 39 min
Internet Explorer became the center of an antitrust lawsuit from the United States in 1998, the same year it started shipping with Windows and became the most-used web browser worldwide. While Microsoft battled in the courtroom, a new version was released for Windows, and the Mac browser had its swan song.

Hosted by Corbin Davenport, guest starring Cody Toombs.
