Frequently asked questions

Q: How can I start using the service?
A: You can use a modern or old computer and any web browser that supports standard proxy servers. For more information, check out our Getting Started Guide.

Q: What do I need to use the service?
A: The service can be used by any computer with access to the Internet. Technically speaking, you only need support for TCP/IP networking, and have a web browser made for the operating system. The service can be used with a wide variety of computers starting with computers made in the late 80's, to modern day. One goal of Retroweb has always been to reopen the Internet to classic computing users, but our focus is to keep Retroweb accessible - this means users with modern computers are fully supported. To see which web browsers can be used with our service, see our comprehensive browser compatibility list.

Q: I want to use a classic web browser on a modern computer. Is that possible?
A: You can run several classic web browsers on recent hardware. Please see Running classic web browsers documentation for more information on how to do this. The page also includes downloads to get you started.

Q: Where can I find downloads to old web browsers?
A: Check out for a full archive of Netscape web browsers.
