Macintosh software via old web browsers

Well, not really sure where to post this, but I’ve been working on a site for the past year that allows very old web browsers to access Mac software. We’re talking browsers as old as NCSA Mosaic!

It’s HTTP and HTTPS, but if you’re on an old mac it would be HTTP.

This has solved a problem for me because some of my disk drives either no longer work or would take a lot of floppy swap to get software on/off them.

The site can also be access via Gopher although there’s no download functionality as yet, but it’s comming.

That’s all! I hope it helps someone.

You know, with a little work, you can compile NCSA Mosaic for modern operating systems(Not sure about Windows).
