RetroZilla: An updated version of Mozilla for Windows 95 and NT4 [2.1 RELEASED]

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR THIS!

It's absolutely wonderful to have a "newer" web browser I can use on Windows 98 for fun.

Sorry if I somehow missed this answer, but will this browser ever be able to view newer SSL locked websites? It would be great to have greater access to the internet on my old machine, even if the webpages don't display correctly.

Please try TLS 1.2 enabled build:

But other than that, you may encounter rendering issues and javascript issues with modern websites.

I gotta sleep soon, but to the best of my knowledge, the only oddities I know of is this (obviously) is not being ran from a virtual machine, I installed all the updates from the 2007 98se autopatcher (I couldn't get access to the newer 2008 autopatch for 98se, I'll try again soon if it means anything), the hard drive is big, KernelEX is not installed, and I'm using an XP era video card. Sorry, I'm not as experienced with this stuff as you guys are, I hope I'm being some kind of help with this information. If you need me to find anything else to help, just ask.

2.1 is out!

I changed many of the default security popup dialogs ("you are entering/leaving a secure site") to be disabled by default, as most people consider them to be annoying, I disabled the sidebar opening every time you search from the urlbar, added the StartPage search engine (Google results without the tracking), added a few urlbar keywords to search easier, and added an update notification to the default home page.

Any issues please let me know.

Download RetroZilla 2.1

I've just downloaded this browser and as far as I can tell it seems to be working fine (on Windows 95B from '96).

It's a nice idea to have a basic browser for Windows 95 but I think it would even make more sense to use something like KMeleon because as far as I know it uses Windows stuff as a GUI and not the XUL stuff that all these Firefox derivates come with.

What this means for the end-user is that it uses less memory and launches faster and that really is quite an important thing on an older computer.

Just saying...

I tried the modified version of Retrozilla on a non patched Windows 98 installation on Virtual Machine and I still got the error. I guess it just wont run on Windows 98?
