Microsoft Now Lets Google Chrome and Firefox Users Access the Update Catalog

Just to point out that they've actually made a new site for other browsers. It's this one:

Microsoft Update Catalog

Script:
http://www.catalog.update.microsoft.com/Home.aspx 
The old one that still needs IE is:

Microsoft Update Catalog

Script:
http://catalog.update.microsoft.com/v7/site/

New site bookmarked.

I can even access the new site from Chrome on my Android devices. Probably won't need to, but handy nonetheless.

A browser that was very popular in 1997!

It's been a while since I've used it, but I believe it was called Interweb Expunger!

I always remember my first PC. I'm more then sure It was a 120MHz Processor? lol Windows 95' 16MB of ram and a HD that I had to clean upon a daily basis because it was literally that small in volume lol.

Did anybody else have Windows 95? And did 95 have as many updates to this present day? Saying that I did not have the NET until' the year 2000

I got my first Windows PC on Nov. 4, 1995. It had Win 3.1 on it because a buddy talked me out of Win 95 saying it wasn't ready for prime time.

64 Megs of memory cost me $1600. The computer itself cost $1700.

My first PC was a Gateway with W95, but it came with an upgrade disc to W98, which I immediately utilized. However, as I never have had this computer online, I never used its browser. It continues to sit there with all its glorious software installed, like Streets USA, Encarta Encyclopedia, etc. It set me back 2,000, and came with a whopping 16 MB of RAM, which I boosted to an incredible 96 MB. The hard drive was 5GB, to which I extravagantly added a massive 20 gigger. I keep it plugged-in, as my wife keeps saying she may use it someday to make greeting cards, but she never gets a round to it. I really ought to donate to a senior center.
