There is also a program called "Arachne" which does graphical web browsing
under DOS. (I use it when working on web pages under DOS -- far more
efficient and faster than loading windoze and using a windows editor!) I
believe it also works with some TCP/IP stack for DOS, but I've not really
looked into that.

P.S. the NetTamer home page is at <http://people.delphi.com/davidcolston/>
and there's a whole passel of DOS Browser/etc. info at
<http://www.concentric.net/~Cruzing/dosinet/dosinet.shtml>. Hope this helps!

P.P.S. you can, of course, use a shell account with pine, tin, lynx, etc.
with just about any computer that can hook up to a modem.
