You should be able to get older versions of Netscape at Silly Dog.

Try Mozilla or Firefox ( Mozilla is a big package with everything like mail client etc, and firefox is the smaller and faster brother of Mozilla with which you can just browse. Both are very configurable, can block popups etc. You can also download different skins so you can make it look the way you want it to. They work on windows 98, and as windows 95 is almost the same as 98 they shouldn't have any problems with your OS.

That was what I thought too which was why I simply got the latest ver of opera. However I havent actually tried mozilla or firefox, so I'll give them a go. Many thanks for your kind assistance. best regards, DAve

Internet Explorer 5.5 or earlier works with Win95.

A backhanded way to install IE is to install AOL and then uninstall it. AOL installs IE and leaves it when AOL is uninstalled.

You can install IE from the AOL CD without installing AOL if you know where to look.

I know what you mean but I'm in Australia and I'm pretty sure the AOL CD's of that era never made it out here :) kind regards, DAve
