It's a very large country with some very remote places where they may not yet have heard that there have been updates for that browser ;o)

Looks like a mobile of some sort to me, but yes, old.
Bear in mind that a lot of CN browsers are not official and so are never included in MS updates, which is why they are so prone to exploits.

Mozilla how many did they say? :)
I once met a Netscape. Think I even posted about it somewhere. Where old browsers go to die. In the same way that retired big-city transit buses get sold to progressively smaller towns before ending up in Mexico, retired browsers end up as Chinese robots.

[evolt.org...] has all the old browsers back to the original WWW. Unfortunately, it looks like it is dead, some kind of SQL error. :(
... and that's why you should always have a webmaster@ address, forwarding to "real" e-mail of your choice.
It's also-- skipping forward to the next post-- why some people weigh the pros and cons and end up deciding that, yeah, better let Wayback do its thing.

<rant> I do not see any pros with the Internet Archive. Not only do I see it as blatant copyright infringement for illicit gain, it (and all cached copies of sites) is a huge security hole that bypasses browser-side & server-side defenses against hacking/scraping/clipping/etc. In addition, adds do not display so it's a loose/loose situation for the webmaster. </rant>

[browsers.evolt.org...] is still alive. I tried to write them to let them know their main page is down, but as pointed out the contact page is also down. Anyway, I used to keep my home pages working in Mosaic 0.6 (probably, still does) and occasionally browse the web in old browsers -- sorta like driving a model T or something. It didn't understand table tags correctly, so there are lots of weird br tags in my source to get around this, also it was before nbsp could be used, so you had to use #160.

I did a dns lookup and e-mailed evolt.org to let them know, hopefully, the address works.

Me too :) so when john@ whatever-it-was next checks his e-mail, there will be a flood.
