Resurrecting The Web

When using the old computers I have, the first thing I discovered is that nothing on the web works in old browsers anymore. The old browsers can’t do modern SSL, PNG graphics, CSS or most HTML.

So, in an effort to make the internet usable, I built legacyproxy. I mainly targeted Netscape 1.1N and it has some triggers for its specific User-Agent. To get started, you just configure the browser’s HTTP Proxy to point to a running instance of the legacyproxy.

Configuring a proxy

Once configured, the proxy will take care of connecting to modern web servers and relay back a simplified web experience.
