8 June, 1993

Cello web browser was launched by Thomas Bruce on 8th June 1993. It was the first Windows browser to be released.

Bruce co-founded the Legal Information Institute at Cornell Law School and quickly realised that most attorneys cannot access the newly created World Wide Web because of a lack of client software. So he developed Cello and released it as a shareware.

Microsoft launched their own Internet Explorer two years later in 1995.
