Tim BL's original web program was both an editor and a browser.  He was
very familiar with Englebart, hypercard, etc.  His mistake was building
his prototype on NeXT systems, which almost no-one had access to, which
meant that few of the early web developers could use it, or even
experience a writable web....

It was the NCSA Mosaic folks who "didn't get it", to a large degree....
