Arachne DOS browser — something I always wanted to get working but never could way back in the day. Pure DOS networking was just too much of a pain.

I did this just a few minutes ago. These are both Windows ports of two classic text mode browsers: Links and ELinks. This is the one that was in all the public libraries back in the 90s.
