It seems to have vanished off the face of the earth. The only idea I have
is that Stanford had its/our own port, which was never distributed to the
world at large... ;-( Maybe some excavation here could dig it up or
confirm/disprove its existence..

Anyway, that is how I used to have a web browser and Xemacs on my
decstation - running the ultrix versions under ultrix. Now I have Xemacs,
but no good web browser...

In any case, it looks like it's gone, and the only thing to do is to try
to get mozilla or konqueror running,
