This early version (1.0.3) of NCSA Mosaic is very slow and incompatible, but it's also the only browser for non-Color QuickDraw Macs that can display images, though they are rather crude.

Mosaic for Macintosh was also available on the NCSA ftp site (now defunct): ftp://ftp.ncsa.uiuc.edu/Mosaic/Mac/

For the music notation software, see Mosaic.

Compatibility
Architecture: 68k

Mac Mosaic will run with earlier versions of MacTCP, but because of bugs in those versions, each document loaded will cause memory usage to increase by 12 KB. Eventually you will run out of memory, and be forced to restart either Mosaic or your computer.

MacTCP is not really required, per se. Only if you wish to use Mosaic to the fullest is this needed. Without a TCP connection, the only files you will be able to view are those on your own hard disk(s).

For example: Mosaic runs well in Mini vMac II - but networking is not well supported in that emulator (if at all), so local files only can be viewed.

For those contemplating having a look at Mr. Berner-Lee's new 'World Wide Web'-thingie.
It's very popular with the academic types, you know, but will it ever replace Archie?

Review from contemporary magazine (MacFormat — Feb. 1994) added.
