Netscape AnimationWhile working at Netscape Communications Corporation (1993-1996), Hagan created the designs for the Netscape 1.0 - 3.0 user experience on three platforms: Windows, Mac, and Unix/Motif. Hagan then became the User Interface Team Leader for Netscape 4.0-this included guiding the designs for eleven simultaneous shipping products: Navigator (web browser), Messenger (email reader), Composer (HTML editor), Collabra(newsgroup reader), Conference (online conferencing tools), Netcaster (information push), Calendar, AOL Instant Messenger, AutoAdmin, Mission Control, and IBM Host On-Demand. David created designs for the Administration interface for the Netscape Server team - these were among the first web-based applications. Ever.

A KILLER APP

"A killer app, in the jargon of computer programmers and video gamers, has been used to refer to any computer program that is so necessary or desirable that it proves the core value of some larger technology, such as computer hardware like a gaming console, operating system or other software. A killer app can substantially increase sales of the platform on which it runs." - Wikipedia

NETSCAPE 1.0 PREFERENCES

Subtle differences, but mostly the same: The Netscape 1.0 Cache preferences in Windows (top), Macintosh (middle) and X/Motif (bottom). Each of the three platforms had similar features, but their interface designs had to follow platform standards. Take, for example, the location of the OK and Cancel buttons in these popup windows.

We're used to working on different platforms, each with slightly different ways of doing things - we've been doing it for a long time.
