i have this fantasy that when i win lotto i will hire a team of programmers to code a 680*0 system 6/7 compatible browser that i can use on the web of today. you know facebook, a little ebay splurgeing etc.

Is this even technically possible?

discuss.

I have used Netscape (3 I think). On a Centris 650 to post to Facebook and here. The pages look nothing like they renderer on a modern web pages :p

Anything is possible, but unless that 68000 is 10Ghz it'd be dog slow trying to keep up with the demands of such sites. Have you tried Lynx, iCab, Internet Explorer 5.5? IE is the most stable of the lot, iCab hasnt been updated for a few years.

Byrd's right...while anything is possible, at the end of the day, the modern Internet just requires way more power than these machines ever had. You're basically asking a Model T Ford to drive on the Autobahn
