It's important to remember that "Oracle" is more than just the database itself. Today, the bulk of Oracle's revenue is from application-related offerings, and each release of Oracle emphasizes different features.
The "i" in Oracle8i and Oracle9i stands for "Internet," and it was given this name to promote the Internet-ready features of Oracle, specifically within the Oracle Application Server (9iAS) products. You can see a detailed list of features by release of Oracle here.
