How to browse the Web on a DOS PC with MicroWeb

MicroWeb is a Web browser for DOS and if you know DOS, you’ll understand how cool that is. But having that functionality on an old IBM DOS PC with 4.77MHz of CPU and 640KB of RAM is quite an achievement in my opinion. In the above video, Al from Al’s Geek Lab shows you how you can get MicroWeb working and access, a site that delivers text-only news for low-end devices, as well as transferring HTTPS to HTTP and how to download stuff. This isn’t “off-grid” but if you only know 5G, fibre-optic broadband and foldable smartphones, it’d seem like it.
