@amiwell

So, in Odyssey 1.23 r5 it kind of works.
It starts by loading some simple redirect JS code which fails to go all the way, but if you add "next/" to the URL it presents after redirecting to the session-specific URL, and the change to "prev/", and then back to the plain session URL, it works!

It then shows some ugly Win95-looking addressbar in which you can write anything, like facebook.com or youtube.com or whatever. The scrollbars keeps popping in and out which causes unnecessary refresh and makes it hard to navigate. It's kind of sluggish on my X1000 towards a local Win10 machine. Remoting in with RDP is faster

In IBrowse (which it not the absolute latest) it doesn't work at all. After guiding it through the wierd next/prev startup it shows something where one can enter text, but just throws invalid URL when entering something.

So with Odyssey it can be used as an emergency tool, but RDP works better. In IBrowse - not at all.

Yet another one which someone recommended (can't remember who), but I haven't tested it or any other of these myself.

@amiwell

It seems that suddenly there's quite wealth of proxies of one sort or another to get our old browsers on the web.

I knew about Browservice but not the others.

Good thread
