AMSD Ariadna is the first Russian web browser ever developed. It was developed by Advanced Multimedia System Design (AMSD) in early 1994.



To spread word of the Internet in Russia, AMSD researched the web browser in 1994. It was released in 1995 and was ported to Windows 95 and Windows NT.

By the time of its introduction, Internet Explorer and Netscape Navigator, two no-cost browsers, were dominating the Russian browser market. Ariadna, however, wasn't free software and, despite its high quality, failed to make a stance in the market and was terminated a few years later.[1]


Being a pioneer browser, Ariadna has limited functionality compared to today's browsers. Some features include:[1]

Ariadna does not support images or JavaScript.
