http://www.dosgames.com/essential.php But yes, it's a great webbrowser for DOS. I think Procerus (another member here, but he hasn't posted in a while) uses it as well.

Moved to General Dosgames.

I would say that since we already know about this and already have a topic about it somewhere, it shall be locked.

The main problem with Arachne is that fact that since it is 100% dos based, it will run REALLY slow. I don't remember the exact reason, but i think it has to do with the modem emulation function.

I switch between Mozilla, Opera, and IE, depending on what I feel like using.

AFAIK, SBC == Southern Bell Company. The ONLY (good, known) phone service in Ontario is Bell Canada. Therefore, they have a monopoly here as well.
