Add another entrant to the race to become the first Palm Beach County mansion to crack the $100 million mark. Internet pioneer Jim Clark just put his Palm Beach spread on the market for $137 million.

Clark’s crib is at 1500 S. Ocean Bvld. Zillow says it’s worth $104 mil. Clark helped usher in the 1990s tech boom by bringing the Netscape browser to market. He moved to Palm Beach from Silicon Valley in 1999, when he bought the rundown property for a mere $11 million.

The most expensive house ever sold in Palm Beach County was 515 N. County Road, which fetched $95 million when Donald Trump sold it in 2008. The Ziff estate in Manalapan has been on the market for $195 million since last year.
