Hi all,
I'm wondering if someone could help me find an old browser that I used on Windows 3.11 for Workgroups. Now, this is some time ago, but I think it was "Mosaic Gecko". The problem is, no such browser is readily found by searching the net - indeed, Mosaic and Gecko are both browser engines, so it wouldn't make sense to have a browser with both. However, the clearest memory I have of this browser is the "loading graphic" - like Netscape Navigator's shooting stars. It was, indeed, a lizard of some sort on a stained glass mosaic background. When it was animated (page was loading), the lizard waved its tail and the polygons lit up.

Sorry if this is too off-topic for this thread. An admin may move it to a more suitable place, if so.

You're probably looking for Mosaic In A Box. I used to have a copy of that, not sure if I still do.

There is an online version of the CD edition of Mosaic in a Box, from Compuserve, on Archive.org: https://archive.org/details/cdrom-mosaicinabox1995

Did the browser have the distinctive lizard loading animation, though? I don't have an environment where I could test. If I understand Wikipedia correctly, the version of Mosaic distributed with Mosaic in a Box is AirMosaic, which looks like this:

Notice the globe loader image - different from the standard Mosaic, but not what I'm looking for.

No-one has mentioned NetSurf. Brilliant if you want to put a modernish browser on older *nix systems.

How come some browsers that require KernelEx or blackwingcat's unofficial W2K Kernel32 are excluded? A few things need to be updated as well:
-Versions of Qupzilla that use Qt4 web kit (Qupzilla 1.43, versions before 1.6.6 untested). It will require you to download Qupzilla 1.1.5 and copy its Qtwebkit4.dll, you also might need to copy Phonon4, Mscvr90, and Msvcp90 if the newer browser doesn't have them(Version 1.6.6 and later doesn't work not sure which is the last version to work on Windows 98/ME, thanks jumper from MSFN!!!)
-Firefox Portable 28.0 and 24.8.1esr (Note: UNOFFICIAL VERSION OF FIREFOX) according to here https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/questions/1052888 (Probably the best version of Firefox without installing unofficial patches and updates!)
-Safari (Just thought it would be worth mentioning...I believe there is a patch to get the last version for Windows working on W2K, but I haven't tried it myself. This browser is kinda dated anyway.)
-Chrome 28 can be used on Windows 2000 if you obtain the chrome tool! According to sources Chrome 30 (Is or isn't?) the last version that supports pentium 3 processors and so on...the last version of Maxthon browser capable of running on Windows 2000 with Ullrollup updates is based off Chrome 30 as well. I'm not sure if Chrome 30 will work or not.
Note: The latest versions of Firefox will not properly work with Blackwingcat's kernel32! Version 26dg??? seems to be the last version that properly works with the last version of firefox!
Note: UllRollup updates seem to be only good with about Firefox 44 before giving the message requires Windows XP SP2 or later!

-Dooble 1.4.0 works on W2K

Today I was working on my wife's laptop. I was trying to install Firefox 64 bit (v46), but the installer said that it needs Windows 7 or later. I've tried to install v43.0.1, and the installer throw the same alert.

32 bit versions installs and work fine, but it seems that Windows 7 is a requirement to use 64 bit. I wonder if that's true for all Firefox versions or if there were a 64 bit version capable of running on XP / Vista systems.

I believe waterfox works on XP 64 bit edition; waterfox is a firefox varient, its based off the same code.

Cyberfox and Palemoon (Non-Atom edition) don't support XP sadly. Although Cyberfox does work on Vista despite not officially supporting it. Cyberfox might have issues setting defaults or something, so know how to manually set them!

There is no Firefox 64-bit version capable ofi running on Windwos XP/Vista. Mozilla Release Engineering is planning to drop Windows XP/Vista support after the release of Firefox 52 (for which it will be supported until 18 April 2017). If the plan is finalised by this November, Mozilla will provide limited Windows XP/Viista support under Firefox ESR 52 until May 2018.

Google already dropped Windows XP/Vista, Mac OS X 10.6-10.8 and 32-bit Linux support with the Chrome 50 browser on 14 April 2016. Mozilla didn't drop Mac OS X 10.6-10.8 support until the release of Firefox 48 a couple of months ago.

Added a link to a build of QtWeb built back in 2013 that supposedly works on NT4.

New Mozilla Firefox 52 drops support for NPAPI plugins (dated back from 1995). No more silverlight, Java, but Flash is still allowed.
