Would this be an older or newer web browser?

MOSAIC, WEB_TOOLS, The Mosaic Web Browser

VMS Mosaic V4.0, 4-JUN-2006

VMS Mosaic is a GUI web browser.  It supports HTML V4.0 (including
tables and frames), animated GIFs, cookies, secure connections, etc.
It does not support Java, JavaScript or style sheets.  A C compiler
is required to build it, if none of the pre-built executables in
the [.EXE] directory are useable.

VMS Mosaic is supported on VAXes running OpenVMS 5.4-3 thru 7.3, on
Alpha systems using OpenVMS V1.5 thru 8.2, and on IA64 systems running
OpenVMS V8.1 thru 8.2-1.  Mosaic will work with UCX (TCP/IP Services),
CMU, MultiNet, Pathway, TCPware or SOCKETSHR with NETLIB.  CMU TCP/IP
is supported via LIBCMUII or SOCKETSHR.  The Mosaic has been compiled
with VAX C, DEC C and GNU C (VAX version 2.7.1 only).  Versions 1.1
thru 1.5 of DECwindows Motif are supported.  Both HP SSL and OpenSSL
are supported for secure connections.
