I believe the adjective they used was "awful" :-)

Yes, I was trying to read these the other day, and it does look like
Netscape has stupidly deleted them. :/

Hehehe. I remember the default window width in Mosaic and Netscape 0.x-2.x
was 470px on both Mac and Windows (thus banner ads are 468px maximum width).
I nudged mine up to 472, and eventually settled on 480px (80 columns of
Monaco 9). If someone can tell me how to count pixels on a NeXT, I'd love
to measure WorldWideWeb.app 0.16's default window size. But we digress. :)
