An alternative is to install linux, an X window system, and then you can
probably use an up to date version of Netscape or Mozilla.

  Off the top of my Head Opera runs on such a machine:

  There is also Arachne - a graphical browser that works in DOS - I have used
  it on a 386 machine quite happily, but I forget the URI (it may be
  http://www.arachne.com of course, but I think it isn't)
  
  There are probably others - brailleSURF might do it, and is a graphical
  browser. And of course early versions of Netscape were available for such
  machines - I think at least Netscape 2 would do it and maybe even Netscape
  3. I don't know if the license on those allows them to still be used, but I
  imagine Netscape would be prepared to allow it if they didn't already. I have
  no idea what the story is with IE, but someone can probably tell you.

    Hi folks,
    
    I have a question regarding browsers, but non-accessibility related. 
    What browser, preferably graphical, would you recommend for a 486 with
    Windows 3.1?  And, more importantly, where might I find said drivers?
    
    A group of small businesses have joined forces and are salvaging old
    computers, refurbishing them and giving them to people with disabilities
    who otherwise couldn't afford them.  Without access to computers, access
    to the web is a moot point.
    
    Thanks.
    
    Cheers,
    Glenda
