Yes ! Excellent ! But have you an idea of which alternative to Netscape we
can sho to the users !!!!!

Lynx		: Hum... doesn't support flash 3, img in directly in the page...
Arena		: I prefer lynx..
express		: If we can call it a browser
gzilla		: as unusable as express
chimera2	: like Arena
mmm		: only html 2.0 compliant
mosaic 		: not better than Arena and chimera2
w3-el		: too fast ! Doesn't support frames....
