I would just like to point out that since the accidental infection of the Morris Worm in 1988, all of the vulnerabilities from that time have been filled. The Morris Worm would not work on the modern internet or with modern computers.

What do the morris worm do here x), even if he come back the security breach he use back then dons't exist anymore so .... he is usless ?

for the one that don't know what the morris worm is, he is one of the first worm virus of the internet, back in 1998 he infected 10% of the entire internet.
Yea, that was a big thing, his source code stocked in a floopy is even in a museum now lol.

I should not be learning new things about browsers while reading this.

Doppelganger time. Give us Vivaldi and Chromium-Edge!

I hope the google-colored wires holding down Edge last chapter are a foreshadow/refence to how Edge was rebuilt in 2019 as a Chromium-based browser

Firefox's shit-eating grin as they fall into the dark web is classic

I'm actually gonna switch to Firefox Quantum thanks to this chapter. Bye Chrome, my PC can't handle your RAM-hunger after all. LOL

@banjomarx It isn't what you'd call mainstream these days.

When Mozilla killed Mozilla-the-product to focus all their resources on Firefox and Thunderbird, a group started maintaining it under the name Seamonkey(which had been an internal codename for Mozilla-the-product).
It is still Gecko-based, and still uses the Mozilla-the-product interface, which is only slightly diffrent from the Netscape 4 interface in most parts. As an old fart that used to use Netscape 4, then Mozilla-the-product, it is a modern browser with an interface I'm comfortable with.

(Netscape 6 and 7 were also based on Mozilla-the-product. So was Firefox, for that matter, though Firefox has long passed the point of being "a fork of Mozilla", in the same way that Chrome is far past "a fork of Safari")

Interesting enough, even though it's basically one evil corporation that doesn't value your privacy vs another. If Amazon could afford to make a browser that would take off, they'd probably join this fight too. Although to be fair, all they'd have to do is take Chromium, and modify it, like everyone else besides Firefox / Mozilla is doing lately.

Even Microsoft's just reskinning Chrome now, basically. It's cheaper than just developing Edge separately.

@Me seamonkey? never even heard of it lol

How did a meme turn into a legit battle shounen comic?

Anonimity, yeah, that's indeed's Chrome's antithesis.

@SunsetSeeker Why not Seamonkey? The last true heir to the throne of Netscape.
(TruFax: I use Seamonkey not out of great passion for the browser wars but because I genuinely hate the Firefox/Chrome/Edge interface. And maybe I could learn to like one of them if they didn't KEEP CHANGING IT EVERY SIX MONTHS! )
