I spend a fair amount of time working with legacy operating systems. Apart from being obsolete themselves they suffer from a common problem - the web browsers are simply unusable on a present day Internet. You start by getting JavaScript error on google.com and it only gets worse once you go further. Try going to microsoft.com with IE 1.5 or qnx.com with the last version of Voyager. This just doesn't work. With rapid progression of web standards, the situation will only be getting worse in time. Something had to be done.

This is some really cool stuff.

I'm a huge fan of Arachne GPL on FreeDOS.

Thanks for mentioning that one. I clearly remember checking out arachne.cz for a new version to play with and what new features were added. Ah, those were the days...

But then again, Compuserve on a Atari 800 with a 300 baud modem were too, but I digress...
