Shouldn't that say "one of the first graphical browsers"?
I don't really know the order things appeared but I thought Lynx was one of the first browsers - Lynx source distribution directory Best thing is that it's still current (latest update on the web site is just a few weeks old!)

Looks like lynx on the web was after the NeXT browser but had been around before that, just not connecting to the internet.
