Forum rules


Please read the following rules before posting a download request in this area:

1. Don't post a request if you have under 10 posts as stated on the front page. If you do anyway, it will be deleted without further notice. This also applies to other members: If you see a request by someone with less than 10 posts and it hasn't been deleted yet, please don't reply to it.
2. Don't request for warez or any copyrighted software. Only betas (no matter how old or new) and finals of operating systems and applications that are at least 10 years old and therefore classified as abandonware are allowed to be uploaded to and shared on the BetaArchive FTP server.
3. If you have your own FTP server where you'd like other members to upload what you're looking for to, please don't post its login details in any open forum as that will probably lead to abuse. Post the login details in the Private Servers section instead.
4. Check that we don't already have the file on our FTP servers. If you don't have access to the FTP servers then ask someone who has (a moderator for example).

Did you read the title of the topic? He's asking for a Web Browser for Windows 3.0, NOT 3.1. And besides, I'm not sure if Netscape Navigator 4.8 will even work with Windows 3.1.

Anyway, Mosiac might work, however, I don't know much about it.

"Requires a newer version of Windows..." I think Mosaic was the earliest Windows browser, too, wasn't it?

How about writing a simple HTML rendering engine for Windows 3, using VB or something like that?

Before you decide that NCSA Mosiac is incompatible with Windows 3.0, are you sure it's NCSA Mosiac or Mosiac Netscape? Also, you could try replacing some files in Windows 3.0 with files from Windows 3.1. If you want to do this, add/replace the files listed below:
GDI.EXE
USER.EXE
SHELL.DLL
VER.DLL

Thanks, I'll give that a go.

I think I'm capable of distinguishing between two things that don't even vaguely look similar.:)

Ok, firstly, Even if you used VB, it would be VB3, which is more or less just a binary script... no support for activex controls. Secondly, whipping up a "simple" rendering engine can take months. If you ever seen a VB app do it, it is because they are embedding another browser.

Again, he's talking about Windows 3.0, NOT Windows 3.1.

The Mosaic history page doesn't specifically say anything about the requirements for the pre 2.x versions of the browser. So your best bet might be to try one of the first three versions (0.6, 0.7, 1.0) listed on this page.

*EDIT

Didn't see this initially.
But if you didn't find or try the pre 2.x versions then try the above link.
