    Default Web sites suitable for Dos/Win 3.x Browsers.

    Just playing with my 386DX25 with WfW and Opera 3.62 on it. I wonder if it would be useful to have a thread listing web pages that will load fine, including ftp sites in old browsers. More a show off thing than any thing really serious. It's surprising how many of them there really are despite all the bloat that's out there. Just a thought anyway.

    I'm amazed that Google cooperated with that old software setup. Who woulda thunk?

    I don't think it would be useful, but I'll hypocritically mention that www.oldskool.org and ftp.oldskool.org are compatible with any browser. And for a fun easter egg, visit www.mobygames.com using lynx.

    You don't know till you try. It shows up nicely on IE5 too but about 4 times slower.. NS not so much. Of course there's no encryption. When searching in Google in Opera it's obvious Google seems to do a reasonable job of prioritizing for it. Even Bing somewhat works.Anyway it's a good party trick.
