Sure. Try Netscape Navigator 1.1 or greater at the URL


This is a search engine, in case you don't read Japanese.

The languages and scripts need to be able to deal with multi-byte

Unicode isn't used very much yet (if at all), but MBCSs like Shift-JIS,
EUC-JP, EUC-KR and so on are used a lot. Stateful charsets like
iso-2022-jp are also used. I would recommend Netscape Navigator for the
client side, and Netscape's servers on the server side.
