Reviving an old computer is like restoring a classic car: There's a thrill from bringing the ancient into the modern world. So it was with my first "real" computer, my Mac Plus, when I decided to bring it forward three decades and introduce it to the modern Web.

It's amazing what's possible on these old machines.

It's definitely a better browsing experience than this MacPlus, but it'd still be nice to have a Proxy that removes a lot of cruft that is 'modern' web sites.

IBrowse certainly could use a huge update, and Netsurf needs some massive amounts of speed tweaks.

Actually if Netsurf wasn't so slow on a 68060, the web would be really usable on it.

Then again I also have tons of ram for it ;) Okay, now the nostalgia makes me want to boot it up again.
