Windows® 98 Supported Browsers
The different types of browsers supported by the Windows® 98 operating system.
Most of the latest browsers don’t support Windows® 98, and Microsoft® no longer offers online updates and support for Windows® 98. Ultimately, the users who have installed Windows® 98 on their systems cannot use the default Internet Explorer® for browsing, as most of the websites have upgraded their web content according to the specifications of the latest browsers. This shortcoming of Windows® 98 can be solved by installing such browsers that are not only supported by Windows® 98, but also offer the same web experience that other web browsers offer.
The following are the few browsers that can be used on Windows® 98:
- Mozilla® Firefox®
- TheWorld Browser
- Acoo Browser
- Avant® Browser
Opera™ is the only renowned browser that supports Windows® 98. It offers tabbed browsing with very good pop-up blocking ability, and makes it possible to experience the web without any limitations. You can perform all the functions with much ease and comfort. It is much faster and reliable than the default browser. You can download it easily from the official website.
You can also use the older version of Mozilla® Firefox® by going to Mozilla® older application page. You can choose the most recent version that supports Windows® 98. It also offers the same web experience as Opera™ offers. Mozilla® also offers tabbed browsing, which allows easier navigation through web pages.
There is also another option to browse the Internet, TheWorld Browser, which is fast, safe, and easy to use. It is especially designed for the Windows® 98 users and offers many useful features that other browsers don’t offer, like Multi-Thread Frame Browsing, Intelligent Ad-Blocker, and Web Page Mute.
It also allows the user to browse multiple web pages in a single window, and has some very interesting features, such as Mouse Gestures, Web Page Analyzer, Built-in Calculator, and RSS Reader. It has all the qualities that are offered by any other good browser.
Avant® Browser has an excellent privacy feature, which allows you to clean the traces on the computer. It has built-in Google™ and Yahoo!® search engines, which facilitate searching for different content easily.
