Well, an Indy is slow by today's standards in the PC world. X works,
but is unaccelerated, so do not expect much there, either. Netscape
is not available for Linux/MIPS, but browsers like dillo, w3m-img and
konqueror should work. I do not have practical experience with them 
on an Indy, though.

Still work-in-progress.
