Geek Trivia

Which browser was the default for Mac OS in the late 1990s?

Firefox

Internet Explorer

In Britain, tradition has it that women can only offer marriage for a while?


Answer: Internet Explorer

If you bought an Apple computer or upgraded your Mac OS between 1998 and 2003, you discovered an unlikely union between two tech giants. As a result of a five-year agreement between Apple and Microsoft, Internet Explorer for Mac was the default Web browser for Mac OS and its successor, Mac OS X.

After the expiration of the agreement in 2003, Apple has changed the default configuration for its internal browser, Safari. Microsoft and Apple have both urged people to switch operators since the immediate shutdown of Internet Explorer for Mac and removal of support in 2005.
