Personally I like the requirement of "freely".  It implies
that like IE, Opera, Netscape, Mozilla, and others the AT
is free.

That is what I was thinking until I realized that if IE is part of OS then
it isn't free.   I know there was a big legal battle about this... but if
you can browse directly off of windows explorer then...    

Opera isn't free either if you need features in advanced version.  But basic
one is. 
That was all that was making me think about perhaps not "freely".   But I
would like Free.
