Quattro Pro

A spreadsheet program. Introduced in 1990, it was one of the first programs (but not the first) to use tabs (allowing a single file to contain multiple spreadsheets). It also contained more columns and rows than any version of Microsoft Excel prior to 2007. However, it has historically occupied a relatively small market share.
