In 1993, development of the Web browser Mosaic, later credited with popularizing the World Wide Web, was completed at the University of Illinois. Today the university commemorates this hi-tech legacy not only with a plaque on its campus, but also with a strong focus on technology that has ranked it among the top ten most wired college campuses in the nation. Illinois invests heavily in "green" technologies, and hosts the National Center for Supercomputing Applications, which aims to build the fastest supercomputer ever. For B-school students, this emphasis on cutting-edge machinery yields access to a fully wired business building that features smart classrooms equipped with business simulation software. The main business building also houses a trading laboratory and computers synchronized with four different operating systems. Recently, the university spent an additional $4.5 million for technology upgrades in graduate classrooms.
