Win NetCruiser login

Login window of NetCruiser 2.0 for Windows.

NetCruiser is a web browser that was included with a version of WebViewer for the Pippin Atmark console.[1]


NetCruiser was one of the first browsers for Windows, developed by Netcom.[2] The software was free, but users paid for Netcom's internet service.[3]

The Macintosh version underwent beta testing in October 1995,[4] and was introduced at Macworld Expo San Francisco in January 1996.[5] NetCruiser 3.0 was bundled with Microsoft Internet Explorer 3.0 and J-DATA software on WebViewer, a "Pippinized" CD-ROM that was released in Japan in 1997.[1]
