Pioneered in Windows 95?

"the 'Browser-style Finder' of OS X (pioneered in Windows 95)"???

NeXTSTEP (OS X predecessor) had the 'Browser-style Finder' since 1988 or so. And I doubt that was the first.

Ever heard of Midnight Commander? Norton Commander? Directory Opus? Fits the browsing paradigm.

Good points. Perhaps "Popularized in Windows 95" is more accurate, then.
