I would highly recommend Amaya then.  It was _the_ HTML-3 testbed!

I haven't used the new version (5.0, release July 4) yet, but it sounds
quite promising too.

It's not really that slow, and it's an excellent HTML editor too!

I'm not sure it does HTTPS yet though, and last time I tried it on a
forms page designed for Netscape it left a bit to be desired.

There's also still Mosaic.  It has even improved over time!  Mosaic
needs lesstif12 (or Motif) though, while Amaya doesn't.  It won't run on
Alpha though (and maybe not any 64-bit machine).

I doubt it....
