Forum with Netscape 3 ?

Unread postby escimo » Sun Jun 18, 2017 3:41 pm

Does Nekochan forum have a simple method of presenting their web sites, like WAP, as well?

Try to open the forum with Netscape 3 from an i486 under Solaris 2.4 x86 and it didn't work (Bad req err code 400...). After some google usage should be problem with cookies. Found no way to dissable cookies under Netscape 3 after all. :mrgreen:

One option could be to upgrade to Netscape 4. Because it's already damn slow with N3 it can't getting more worse with N4, I hope.
Option two is to switch to text based browsing (e.g. lynx). Anyone here who browsing through Nekochan forum with text browser?

Netscape 4 works fine.

You could always look into some sort of proxy system.

There is also a third option: You could try Tenox's web rendering proxy. It converts web pages to clickable image maps. Should work on most browsers. Though when I tried it on Netscape 1.0, I couldn't get any of the links to work (that might just be Netscape 1.0 though).

You can find it here: https://github.com/tenox7/wrp

Does anyone have the Netscape 0.93 IRIX binary? I've got the Win16 version version of it around here somewhere, I think. Or at least I used to...

Have to take a look into the downloads once did. But it will be more like version 1.x. Version 0.x, not sure.
