The Mountain View-based company's sales soared to $346 million last year, up 310% from a year earlier. The growth was largely fueled by the company's successful effort to go beyond the browser by developing an array of software for corporate customers.

Xylan Corp. rode the boom in demand for computer networking to become one of the hottest initial public offerings of 1996, but its stock got battered after industrywide sales growth slowed. Nonetheless, stock analysts still think the Calabasas-based company, which makes switches that move data over computer networks, is on its way to staking out a long-term market position. The industry, dominated by Cisco Systems Inc. and 3Com Corp., has several such potential niche leaders.
