Windows 98 (originally to be called Windows 97, codenamed Memphis), is a 32-bit operating system developed and published by Microsoft Corporation in 1998, as a successor to Windows 95. It expanded and built upon the success of Windows 95.

Windows 98 included Internet Explorer 4.01 (a web browser), Outlook Express (an email & news client), Windows Address Book (an address book), FrontPage Express (an HTML editor), Microsoft Chat (a graphical IRC client), and Personal Web Server (a web server software application).
