I was barely able to boot Linux on 2MB system back then. Today I need 8Mb for that. Netscape was quite useful on 12MB Linux system (8MB was too slow), today you can barely even start Firefox on 48MB system. Huge size of Linux kernel in real life is mostly page tables so I think Linux and Firefox grew in unison...
