Telnet. The only actual Internet client there is. Everything else is Web clients:

[pre]~$ telnet mistman.pdp10.org 80
...
GET /pub/squid/slosh-20090704.txt HTTP/1.1
Host: mistman.pdp10.org[/pre]

That said, I can't believe (despite the myriad of still-unresolved security issues that have been noted over the last 20 years or so) that people are still using Web Exploiter. I suppose there will always be a few stragglers out there (American Offline via dial-up access? They still have that?) but it's a Firefox world now!

You're welcome. Citrio has Ask as a default search engine, however. I have changed it to the one I've been always using. So now I am completely satisfied.

IE is excellent... Your listening to all the MSM crap about IE and thats sad.....

I use IE6 and I can use CUSTOM CSS on any site I am on... (I can use just about ANY css skin on any site) and I think all IE versions can do this......

I don't know about Safari, but you can in Chrome. This feature was actually introduced by Netscape in the 90s.

The concern with IE6 is that it's so insecure that you're practically sharing any information that goes through it with the world (or anyone who wants to see it).

Several FF plugins can do this as well.

<tangent>Update:

Shockingly enough, they do. I was at a neighbour's house yesterday and witnessed it in use, in real-time. I had to look at a calendar to be sure it wasn't 2001 again. Meanwhile, earlier this week Centurylump completely phased its increasingly obsolete 1.5 Mb/s ADSL service out and upgraded the few stragglers using it to 10 Mb/s service (8 up/2 down).</tangent>

I used to use IE. When 9 loaded and crashed and would not work, then was uninstalled to clear the problem I tried Firefox. Been using it ever since. The only annoying part was where it put my mile long favorites in alphabetical order. The sites were in little 'interset clutsters' before.

I can't believe you could do much on dialup. I remember back in 86 when we thought a 12k modem was really really fast.
