NetHopper

The first commercial web browser for Newton OS developed by AllPen Software and released in August 1996.

NetHopper began as an application that allowed Newton devices to access the web through a Mac OS computer running as an internet gateway. Subsequent versions of NetHopper used Apple’s Newton Internet Enabler (NIE) software to connect directly to the internet through a modem or other network connection.
