Hi!

I am a Systems and Computer Engineering student at the University of
Guelph (Guelph, Ontario Canada).  

I like many people do not want to feel constrained by mainstream web
browsers and would like to know what alternatives are available.   I
searched the web for about 2 hours to find a list of available web
browsers, but could not find anything that was devoted to this task
besides the results of the search engine at www.shareware.com . So I am
hoping to provide this service myself.

I have just started a list of web browsers:

http://www.uoguelph.ca/~gnasby/projects/web_browser_info/browser_list.html
(This is to be the permanent location for the page.)

The goal of this page is to become the definative list for web browsers
on the web.

It has all kinds of categories for browsers (shareware, freeware,
commercial, under development, open-source, etc.)  And covers almost
every operating system out there, including: win32, win16, DOS, OS/2,
Java, Mac, 10 different flavours of unix, source-code, etc.

One nice aspect of the page is that it is designed so that for every
browser (and for each OS it runs under, if desired) there will be a URL
to a web page on the internet for that browser.  There is also a listing
of the company/development-team responsible with a URL link.

         E.g. when it lists Netscape Navigator, it has a 
           link to the Netscape Navigator homepage
           and a link to the homepage for Netscape Communications.
 

I would greatly appreciate it if some folks could check out the page and
let me know what you think.  

Also if I am missing any browsers, please let me know so I can add
them.  Additionally, if there are any corrections to be made to the
page, let me know as well.

Cheers,

Graham Nasby
