The first meeting between Clark and Andreessen was never truly about a software or service like Netscape, but more about a product that was similar to Nintendo.
Jim Clark and Marc Andreessen originally created a 20-page concept pitch for an online gaming network to Nintendo for the Nintendo 64 console, but a deal was never reached.
The stock closed at US.25, which gave Netscape a market value of US.9 billion.
While it was unusual for a company to go public prior to becoming profitable, Netscape's revenues had, in fact, doubled every quarter in 1995.
Netscape advertised that "the web is for everyone" and stated one of its goals was to "level the playing field" among operating systems by providing a consistent web browsing experience across them.
The Netscape web browser interface was identical on any computer.
The stock was set to be offered at US per share, but a last-minute decision doubled the initial offering to US per share.
The stock's value soared to US during the first day of trading, nearly a record for first-day gain.
On August 9, 1995, Netscape made an extremely successful IPO.a move from Windows to another operating system would yield a similar browsing experience thus reducing barriers to change.It is alleged that several Microsoft executives visited the Netscape campus in June 1995 to propose dividing the market (an allegation denied by Microsoft and, if true, would have breached antitrust laws), which would have allowed Microsoft to produce web browser software for Windows while leaving all other operating systems to Netscape. Microsoft released version 1.0 of Internet Explorer as a part of the Windows 95 Plus Pack add-on.Marc Andreessen explains, "If they had shipped a year earlier, we probably would have done that instead of Netscape." The company's first product was the web browser, called Mosaic Netscape 0.9, released on October 13, 1994.Within four months of its release, it had already taken three-quarters of the browser market.
