Dop> Firefox is, essentially, "just a browser".
Yes, for whch I'm grateful. I use it when neccessary.
Dop> There's always lynx, of course,...
I have a long "alias fetch 'lynx <lots of hentracks>'" that fetches
stuff as text and footnoted links into a shell buffer inside emacs
where I can mess with it. Often handy. Never use it interactively.

Heh. I once wrote code that would allow one Osborne I to use all
(64K) of the RAM of another Osborne I (except a tiny bit for the code,
of course) as a RAM disk over serial line. Worked perfectly. Totally
useless for anything practical. Because the video was memory-mapped,
you could see your data from A dribbling to the video RAM on B's
Dop>> Thanks for the suggestions all,
Dop> Er, or not. Sorry for being so cynical...
