Times gone by
I started out with Netscape around late 1994 or 1995. Stuck with it a few years before moving on to Internet Explorer. I think I used IE until around 2005 or so when I switched to FireFox. Thought Id need to change again with all the problems but Quantum seems to have solved them for me. So only used 3 browsers since I started in 1994 at age 25. I still remember the people calling them Nutscrape and Internet Exploder. :)
As for Dark Forces. Wow what a fun game. I personally still thought DOOM II looked and played better but DF was a step up in some ways and was very fun to play with my friend in co-op.
