Hi all! I'm developing a HTTP proxy server that should help older browsers to work in the modern internet. It is called WebOne.
Currently WebOne can only request pages from any modern servers (even through HTTPS connections when the browser is too old to decode server's cipher) and convert content code page from UTF-8 to system's local (should be useful for non-English users with Windows 9x). This should return possibility to see some content of webpages in retro browsers (while currently they're simply stops loading due to TLS errors).
It's not a rendering proxy, it helps old rendering engines in displaying content of webpages using their own possibilities.
The proxy server intended to be run on a modern PC with .NET Framework 4.6 or newer (probably, it should work with Mono too). To use it place a modern PC with WebOne installed and running into same LAN with an old PC (the modern PC must have access to the Internet) and set IP address or hostname of the modern PC as HTTP 1.0 Proxy in settings of a old browser on an old machine. By default the WebOne runs on port 80, but it can be changed to any other valid port.
Feel free to test it and report bugs. This app is open-source, so Pull requests are welcomed.
